In recent years there has emerged a realisation that these difficulties in communication[…][books.google.com]

    Complications may include irreversible shock, sagittal or other venous sinus thrombosis, intractable seizures, and renal failure. Bettari L, Fiuzat M, Shaw LK, et al.[emedicine.medscape.com]

    Continuum (Minneap Minn). 2015 Apr;21(2 Neuro-oncology):480-6. doi: 10.1212/01.CON.0000464183.35322.5f. Abstract Neurologists are often on the front lines of diagnosis for primary and metastatic brain tumors. Patients with brain tumors typically have multiple comorbidities and pain generators beyond headache,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    The incidence of brain abscess is higher among immunosuppressed patients. We report a case of a brain abscess in the temporal lobe in a patient under treatment with adalimumab and methotrexate, who developed radiological worsening. Clinical remission was essential to suspect Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Intracranial hematoma secondary to superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is a well described, but rare event.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of interval resolution of a intracerebral hematoma in a patient with thrombosis of the sagittal sinus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Head Injury

    Repeat CT revealed sinus thrombosis that involved the posterior aspect of the superior sagittal sinus with a massive brain edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    Has a depressed level of consciousness (Glasgow Coma Score below 13). Has unexplained progressive or fluctuating symptoms. Has papilloedema, neck stiffness or fever.[patient.info] Superior sagittal sinus and cerebral cortical venous thrombosis caused by congenital protein C deficiency: case report.
