40 Possible Causes for Anosmia, Bacterial Meningitis, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Acute Sinusitis

    A lumbar puncture was performed for suspicion of meningitis but showed no bacterial growth.[] Clinical features Postnasal drip Bilateral nasal obstruction Frequently impaired olfactory function (from hyposmia to anosmia ) Fever and severe facial pain are uncommon.[] Chronic sinusitis is defined as a patient having two or more of the symptoms of nasal obstruction, rhinorrhoea, facial pain or headache or anosmia for longer than three months[]

  • Skull Fracture

    Antibiotics are often given prophylactically, although their role in preventing bacterial meningitis has not been established.[] Some of the presentations include anosmia (a lack of smell), epistaxis (bleeding from the nose), rhinorrhea (leak of the cerebrospinal fluid from the nose), raccoon eyes,[] BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Pulmonary embolus (PE) occurring concurrent with-and as a result of-traumatic superior sagittal sinus thrombosis (SSST) has never before been reported[]

  • Frontal Sinusitis

    Diffusion-weighted imaging in acute bacterial meningitis in infancy. Neuroradiology. 2003; 45(9):634-9. PubMed Google Scholar Nickerson JP, Richner B, Santy K and al.[] Hyposmia / anosmia Medical Treatment first Treatment of infection: Antibiotics should be prescribed routinely because only 30-40% of patients with clinically suspected sinusitis[] Sometimes thrombophlebitis can develop causing superior sagittal sinus thrombosis and cavernous sinus thrombosis.[]

  • Ethmoid Sinusitis

    In adults, however, the arachnoid forms a better barrier and bacterial meningitis rarely complicates SE (19).[] When she continued to complain of progressive headaches, right-sided epiphora, and anosmia, limited computed tomography (CT) of the paranasal sinuses was obtained (figure[] Serial brain MRIs showed cerebral venous infarct and thrombosis in the superior sagittal sinus (SSS).[]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Frontal Bone

    Other complications include facial deformity or concavity, synechiae to the septum, stenosis of the sphenoid os, recurrence, anosmia, CSF leak, and meningitis, mucocele, and[] […] intraoperative trauma: CSF leaks, intraorbital hemorrhage, diplopia, blindness, epiphora, intracranial injury, stroke, tension pneumocephalus, significant epistaxis, and anosmia[]

  • Sphenoid Sinusitis

    A 64-year-old woman was initially seen unconscious with bacterial meningitis and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistula.[] […] or anosmia Headache Fever Halitosis Fatigue Dental pain Cough Ear pain, pressure, fullness Reprinted from Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Vol 117, Donald C.[] Fatal complications included cavernous sinus thrombosis and bacterial meningitis.[]

  • Hydrocephalus

    (both during infection and chronic) TB meningitis is typically basal filling the basal cisterns bacterial meningitis is typically also over the convexities leptomeningeal[] Sagittal sinus thrombosis can occur in children due to direct extension of an infection or in cases of severe hypernatremic dehydration.[] meningitis or mumps Bleeding in the brain from a stroke or head injury Other traumatic injury to the brain Complications Long-term complications of hydrocephalus can vary[]

  • Encephalitis

    Individuals with encephalitis or bacterial meningitis are usually hospitalized for treatment.[] In addition, because of the involvement of the frontal and temporal lobes, patients often display bizarre behaviour, personality changes, anosmia, and gustatory hallucinations[] MRI can also exclude lesions that mimic viral encephalitis (eg, brain abscess, sagittal sinus thrombosis).[]

  • Subarachnoid Abscess

    […] complication of bacterial meningitis.[] Olfactory groove meningioma will cause anosmia, initially unilateral and later bilateral. The presenting features may include symptoms of raised intracranial pressure.[] […] the superior sagittal sinus.[]

  • Meningeal Disorder

    Vaccines have dramatically reduced the incidence of bacterial meningitis. Fast facts on bacterial meningitis Here are some facts about bacterial meningitis.[] Location - Olfactory Groove and sella (bony space where the pituitary gland is situated) Common Symptoms - Loss of smell (anosmia), subtle personality changes, mild difficulty[] PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI Defective resorption of CSF into the superior sagittal sinus due to sinovenous thrombosis accounts for some cases of the syndrome of pseudotumor cerebri[]
