A total number of 19 patients with the diagnosis of CSVT were included in the study.
CSVT has been reported to be more common among females.
MRI and MRI venography are the first choice of investigation for the diagnosis of CSVT. All patients in our study were diagnosed with MRI and MRI venography.
Future prospective studies in large numbers of patients are needed to better describe features of CSVT patients.
An MRI showed abnormal signal intensity in the lower superior sagittal and bilateral transverse sinuses, indicating CSVT (Figures 1(b1) and 1(b2)).
The classification includes perinatal arterial ischemic strokes (PAIS), cerebral sinus venous thrombosis (CSVT), or hemorrhagic strokes.
In our cases two of the four mothers, all with CSVT, had no prenatal care.
* Anticoagulation with LMWH or UFH for at least 5-10 days, followed by warfarin or LMWH is suggested for a minimum of 3 months up to 6 months for CSVT in children if there is no significant haemorrhage.
* Radiological monitoring of the thrombosis at 5-7 days is recommended for CSVT with significant haemorrhage; anticoagulation is suggested if thrombus extension is noted.
