Abstract

Dural venous sinus thrombosis (DVST) is a relatively infrequent but potentially serious neurological disorder. Diagnosis of DVST remains difficult due to extremely wide spectrum of clinical presentation and variable mode of onset. Accurate recognition of DVST is crucial, because appropriate and early treatment’s approach significantly reduces the risk of fatal outcome. Neuroimaging plays an important role in visualization of this disease. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CT- and MR-venography followed by digital subtraction angiography and scintigraphy are the most useful diagnostic methods in DVST.
The authors illustrate radiological features of thrombosed venous sinus and present diagnostic limitations of these techniques.
