Disease Lateral Sinus Thrombosis

Name Lateral Sinus Thrombosis
Synonyms Lateral Sinus Thrombophlebitis | Lateral Sinus Thromboses | Phlebitis, Lateral Sinus, Septic | Septic Phlebitis, Lateral Sinus | Sinus Thromboses, Transverse | Thrombophlebitis, Lateral Sinus | Thromboses, Lateral Sinus | Thromboses, Transverse Sinus | Thrombosis, Lateral Sinus | Thrombosis, Transverse Sinus | Transverse Sinus Thromboses | Transverse Sinus Thrombosis
Definition Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the LATERAL SINUSES. This condition is often associated with ear infections (OTITIS MEDIA or MASTOIDITIS) without antibiotic treatment. In developed nations, lateral sinus thrombosis can result from CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; THROMBOPHILIA; and other conditions. Clinical features include HEADACHE; VERTIGO; and increased intracranial pressure.
