Abstract

Cerebral vein thrombosis accounts for an estimated 0.5% of all strokes. It remains a major clinical concern that is still too rarely diagnosed. The causes of CVT vary, with differences occurring in the history and prognosis of the condition. This article discusses the case of a female patient diagnosed with cerebral vein thrombosis, in which regression of thrombotic lesions was achieved during treatment. We will provide basic facts on the aetiology, clinical symptoms and treatment of thrombosis. In the majority of cases, good prognosis should — given the adequate diagnosis and treatment — allow us to improve our understanding of CVT.
