Disease Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

Name Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis
Synonyms Phlebitis, Sagittal Sinus, Septic | Sagittal Sinus Septic Phlebitis | Sagittal Sinus Thrombophlebitis | Sagittal Sinus Thromboses | Septic Phlebitis, Sagittal Sinus | Sinus Thrombophlebitis, Sagittal | Sinus Thromboses, Sagittal | Sinus Thrombosis, Sagittal | Thrombophlebitis, Sagittal Sinus | Thromboses, Sagittal Sinus | Thrombosis, Sagittal Sinus
Definition Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.
