171 Possible Causes for Intracranial Hypertension, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Acute intracranial hypertension (IHT), when severe and sustained, is a life-threatening complication that demands emergency treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hypertension.[nejm.org] We hypothesize that early DC, based on CT evidence of intracranial hypertension, improves intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    […] hemorrhage causing intractable intracranial hypertension, decompressive hemicraniectomy may be considered Disposition, consults and follow up early neurology and haematology[lifeinthefastlane.com] , cerebral sinovenous thrombosis , dural sinus thrombosis , sagittal sinus thrombosis , and sinus thrombosis .[medlink.com] The patient may present with one or several of these. 2-4 The most common syndrome is intracranial hypertension resulting in headache .[emdocs.net]

  • Brain Neoplasm

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

  • Brain Abscess

    The patient developed a brain abscess and a subdural collection with severe intracranial hypertension of fatal evolution.[repositorio.uchile.cl] Other findings are paresthesias 12,17, cerebelar signs 11,31, facial palsy 31, and intracranial hypertension 11.[scielo.br] Symptoms include fever, malaise, irritability, severe headache, convulsions, vomiting, and other signs of intracranial hypertension.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Intracranial Sinus Thrombosis

    FLAIR MRI ( left lower image ) and MRV ( right lower image ) demonstrated a subacute right transverse sinus thrombosis (blue arrow) as the cause of the intracranial hypertension[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] Even in patients with no evidence of systemic thrombosis, but who have sagittal sinus thrombosis, the possibility of dislodging pulmonary emboli should be strongly considered[dx.doi.org] hypertension, SAH, meningitis, or intracranial lesions.[dx.doi.org]

  • Cerebral Vein Thrombosis

    CVT may cause brain infarction and increased intracranial pressure. Sometimes, idiopathic intracranial hypertension presents as the only clinical manifestation.[mayoclinic.pure.elsevier.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] […] children, cerebral sinovenous thrombosis, dural sinus thrombosis, sagittal sinus thrombosis, and sinus thrombosis.[medlink.com]

  • Cerebral Venous Sinus Disorder

    Intracranial venous sinus stenting for benign intracranial hypertension: clinical indications, technique, and preliminary results.[medsci.org] […] and 23 (46%) patients had superficial system (superior sagittal sinus) thrombosis.[ruralneuropractice.com] […] hemorrhage causing intractable intracranial hypertension, decompressive hemicraniectomy may be considered Disposition, consults and follow up early neurology and haematology[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

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

  • Sinusitis

    Intracranial complications included subdural empyema, frontal lobe abscesses, intrahemispheric abscesses, cavernous and superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, and osteomyelitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Intracranial complications include epidural and subdural empyema, intraparenchymal brain abscess, meningitis, and cavernous or sagittal sinus thrombosis.[infectiousdiseaseadvisor.com]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Complications include intracranial hypertension, brain herniation, and death.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Intracranial hematoma secondary to superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is a well described, but rare event.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[scielo.br]
