10 Possible Causes for Intracranial Sinus Thrombosis, Postural Defect

  • Homocystinuria

    A case of Moebius syndrome is reported in an infant of a mother known to have pyridoxine-unresponsive homocystinuria. The authors suggest that Moebius syndrome could result from early vascular insufficiency or disruption occurring early in development related to maternal homocystinuria. Moebius syndrome consists[…][]

  • Papilledema

    Key Features Optic Nerve Head Drusen True Papilledema Visual Symptoms Transient vision loss (TVL) & Visual field defects (VFDs) can occur TVL, double vision, and VFDs Headaches[] […] pressure includes intracranial mass lesions or fistulas, venous sinus thrombosis, meningitis, subarachnoid hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, and idiopathic intracranial[] Causes include the following: Brain tumor or abscess Cerebral trauma or hemorrhage Meningitis Arachnoidal adhesions Cavernous or dural sinus thrombosis Encephalitis Idiopathic[]

  • Thunderclap Headache

    The typical patient with SIH has a continuous diffuse headache that worsens with upright posture (sitting, standing) and improves with lying down.[] TCH might be the first sign of subarachnoid haemorrhage, unruptured intracranial aneurysm, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, cervical artery dissection, acute hypertensive[] Sentinel headache, reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome, arterial dissection, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, pituitary apoplexy, intracranial hemorrhage, ischemic[]

  • Optic Nerve Infarction

    Video on the Holmes-Adie Pupil Question 5: What is an afferent pupillary defect?[] sinus thrombosis, malignant hypertension, meningitis, side effects of certain medications (oral contraceptives, tetracyclines, growth hormone and vitamin A), idiopathic intracranial[] thrombosis, radical neck surgery, middle ear disease (which may cause dural sinus thrombosis), recent weight gain, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and pregnancy.[]

  • Carotid Artery Dissection

    After carotid stenting, left relative afferent pupillary defect disappeared and TMB was not provoked anymore by upright posture.[] Causes of Sudden Headache Cerebral aneurysmal rupture Arterial Dissection Venous Sinus Thrombosis Reversible Vasoconstriction Syndrome Rarer causes including Spontaneous intracranial[] Pupil size and light reflex were normal, but a relative afferent pupillary defect was positive in the left eye.[]

  • Primary Optic Atrophy

    Some patients with Leber hereditary optic neuropathy have cardiac conduction defects.[] […] lesion (which can cause unilateral or bilateral disc swelling) carotid-cavernous fistula cavernous sinus thrombosis Bilateral disc swelling (This usually suggests the presence[] Other patients have minor neurologic abnormalities, such as a postural tremor, loss of ankle reflexes, dystonia, spasticity, or a multiple sclerosis–like illness.[]

  • Visual Impairment

  • Optic Disc Drusen

    Key Features Optic Nerve Head Drusen True Papilledema Visual Symptoms Transient vision loss (TVL) & Visual field defects (VFDs) can occur TVL, double vision, and VFDs Headaches[] Unenhanced CT scan discloses space-occupying mass lesions, but to exclude venous sinus thrombosis, spiral-CT venography is an excellent tool.[] Not associated with ONHD If present are described as worse upon awakening &/or postural changes Neurological Symptoms Not associated with ONHD Tinnitus, vertigo, nausea/vomiting[]

  • Ocular Palsy

    Keywords Spastic type Cerebral palsy Ocular findings Strabismus Background Cerebral palsy is a disorder of movement and posture due to a defect or lesion in the immature brain[] […] pressure; palsies uncal herniation Cavernous sinus/ superior orbital fissure Cavernous sinus thrombosis; tumor; Ipsilateral Horner's syndrome; internal carotid artery aneurysm[] Retinal or optic nerve diseases which cause altitudinal superior visual field defect are associated with chin-up posture to centralize the residual field with the body.[]

  • Dihydroergotamine

    The results of tests performed on the autonomic nervous system are recorded, and the evidence for a central defect in postural blood pressure control is presented.[] […] thrombolysis of the sagittal sinus.[] We suspect that DHE helped precipitate neurologic deterioration in this patient with sagittal sinus thrombosis.[]
