    -severe headaches -neck pain and stiffness Severe facial pain - stiff jaw, numbness and tingling sensation on cheekbones, cheeks and forehead, sore gums and teeth, mild face[zocdoc.com] Whereas CT shows hyperdensity, MRI shows hyperintensity on T1W sequence in acutely thrombosed sinuses.[jscisociety.com] Both patients presented with hemiplegia, seizures, and a large goiter. CONCLUSIONS: The development of superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is multifactorial.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sphenoid Sinusitis
