94 Possible Causes for Intracranial Hypertension, Malaise, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Brain Abscess

    The patient developed a brain abscess and a subdural collection with severe intracranial hypertension of fatal evolution.[] Clinical features: The earliest stage where the brain tissue is invaded (stage of encephalitis) is marked by the presence of headache, fever, malaise and vomiting.[] Other findings are paresthesias 12,17, cerebelar signs 11,31, facial palsy 31, and intracranial hypertension 11.[]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    Craniopharyngiomas will cause mass effect symptoms, including visual loss or symptoms of intracranial hypertension. [18] Erfurth EM.[]

  • Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

    Cerebral venous (or sinus) thrombosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of intracranial hypertension.[] Subsequent computed tomography and magnetic resonance venography confirmed a superior sagittal sinus thrombosis.[] Conservative treatment of intracranial hypertension, including just repeated lumbar puncture and oral acetazolamide, was performed.[]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Complications include intracranial hypertension, brain herniation, and death.[] Intracranial hematoma secondary to superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is a well described, but rare event.[] Intracranial hypertension is considered the main reason for surgical indication in subjects with ICH, especially in cases in which there is a progressive neurological deterioration[]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Frontal Bone

    hypertension, needing urgent decompressive craniectomy.[] Male patient admitted to the hospital by fever, headache, malaise and diplopia. Physical examination shows left eye proptosis, oedema and ecchymosis.[] The chronic is characterized by low fever, general malaise, pain, edema may also occur sino-cutaneous fistulas, sequestration and secretion through the bone with cyclic exacerbation[]

  • Subdural Empyema

    hypertension.[] Dural attachments, especially at sutures, and the sagittal sinus contain the infection.[] Malaise, fever, and declining mental status can occur rapidly. Complications can include dural venous thrombosis, parenchymal abscess, epidural abscess , and meningitis.[]

  • Cerebral Vein Thrombosis

    CVT may cause brain infarction and increased intracranial pressure. Sometimes, idiopathic intracranial hypertension presents as the only clinical manifestation.[] Cerebral vein thrombosis, also called superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, is a well recognized clinical and radiologic entity associated with a variety of medical disorders[] A 40-year-old man developed general malaise, dizziness and progressive headache 1 week after acute haemorrhagic conjunctivitis.[]

  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    Other signs/symptoms include evidence of intracranial hypertension (vomiting, papilledema, visual disturbances), neurologic deficits, seizures, and coma.[] The list of complications provided in an article by Mueller regarding internal jugular vein thrombosis included pulmonary embolism, subclavian vein and superior sagittal sinus[] […] hemorrhage causing intractable intracranial hypertension, decompressive hemicraniectomy may be considered Disposition, consults and follow up early neurology and haematology[]

  • Sinusitis

    Intracranial complications included subdural empyema, frontal lobe abscesses, intrahemispheric abscesses, cavernous and superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, and osteomyelitis[] Acute sinusitis usually follows a cold and presents with nasal obstruction, facial pain, dental pain, purulent rhinorrhoea, sinus tenderness and in some cases fever and malaise[] Intracranial complications include epidural and subdural empyema, intraparenchymal brain abscess, meningitis, and cavernous or sagittal sinus thrombosis.[]

  • Lateral Sinus Thrombosis

    Several cases of hypothyroidism have been reported to develop idiopathic intracranial hypertension not directly precisely linked with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVT[] sinus thrombosis following hip surgery.[] The common complaint of the patient being headache accompanied by malaise.[]
