Abstract

Sinovenous thrombosis in children is rare, and the symptoms and signs are nonspecific especially in the neonatal population. MR imaging seems to be the most sensitive for accurate diagnosis of dural sinus thrombosis. General medical and neurologic supportive care is the mainstay of treatment. However, more active medical treatment such as anticoagulation, as well as an aggressive form of treatment such as retrograde transvenous fibrinolytic therapy, in children whose condition declines despite adequate anticoagulation therapy can be justified.
