85 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Hemiparesis, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    She was treated with anticoagulation therapy and her hemiparesis improved within 3 days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) does not necessarily help in establishing the diagnosis as there are no pathognomonic features.[pmj.bmj.com] , cerebral sinovenous thrombosis , dural sinus thrombosis , sagittal sinus thrombosis , and sinus thrombosis .[medlink.com]

  • Brain Abscess

Emergent surgical drainage was performed and antibiotics were administered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Postictal cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities in children.

    She had right sided hemiparesis, signs of meningeal irritation with normal fundus examination. Her breasts were soft.[casereports.in] In our study, the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) mostly showed abnormal composition and elevation of the intracranial pressure.[panafrican-med-journal.com] Cerebral vein thrombosis, also called superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, is a well recognized clinical and radiologic entity associated with a variety of medical disorders[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    SSEH presenting as a hemiparesis is less common and in such situations, it can be mistaken for a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Superior sagittal sinus and cerebral cortical venous thrombosis caused by congenital protein C deficiency: case report. Neurol Med Chir. 2000 ; 40 : 645–649.[doi.org] In the Wind chapter of Donguibogam, left hemiparesis due to stroke is called Tan, a sort of Hyeol-Byeong, and right hemiparesis due to stroke is called Tan, a sort of Gi-Byeong[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    A 32-year-old man presented with slight left hemiparesis. He was slightly confused, and his blood pressure was extremely high.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both computerized tomography of the head and cerebrospinal fluid examination were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] sinus thrombosis hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy SMART syndrome Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Supratentorial tumors in children are more commonly associated with seizures, hemiparesis, visual field cuts, speech difficulties, and intellectual disturbance.[emedicine.medscape.com] For example, blood and cerebrospinal fluid may also be tested to check for substances secreted by tumors (called tumor markers) and for gene abnormalities that are characteristic[merckmanuals.com] In the postictal state, she had a mild expressive aphasia, mild right hemiparesis, and diminished sensation over the right side of the face.[thefreelibrary.com]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    A 73-year-old woman was transferred to our hospital for sudden headache and subsequent left hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] for SAH; CT negative for SAH and inconclusive cerebrospinal fluid examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] with recanalization of the cortical vein but a patent superior sagittal sinus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subdural Hematoma

  • Cerebral Embolism

    However, the patient then developed fever, dyspnea, and subsequent right hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] VENOUS INFARCT AND SINOVENOUS THROMBOSIS Sinovenous thrombosis Superior sagittal sinus thrombosis.[neuropathology-web.org] She had developed sudden complete left hemiparesis due to an embolism at the carotid bifurcation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
