Abstract

Cerebral venous thrombosis is a serious but potentially treatable cerebrovascular disorder that, unlike arterial cerebrovascular disorder, often affects young adults and children. Cerebral venous thrombosis is a challenging condition for the clinicians because of the wide spectrum of its clinical presentation. Although recognized for more than 100 years, its incidence has been underestimated in the past due to the lack of accurate diagnostic techniques.
