Cerebral Venous Thrombosis Associated with COVID-19

Cerebral Venous Thrombosis Associated with COVID-19 BRIEF/TECHNICAL REPORT ADULT BRAIN D.D. Cavalcanti, E. Raz, M. Shapiro, S. Dehkharghani, S. Yaghi, K. Lillemoe, E. Nossek, J. Torres, R. Jain, H.A. Riina, A. Radmanesh, and P.K. Nelson ABSTRACT SUMMARY: Despite the severity of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) being more frequently related to acute respiratory distress syndrome and acute cardiac and renal injuries, thromboembolic events have been increasingly reported. We report a unique series of young patients with COVID-19 presenting with cerebral venous system thrombosis. Three patients younger than 41 years of age with confirmed Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov-2) infection had neurologic findings related to cere- bral venous thrombosis. They were admitted during the short period of 10 days between March and April 2020 and were managed in an academic institution in a large city. One patient had thrombosis in both the superficial and deep systems; another had involvement of the straight sinus, vein of Galen, and internal cerebral veins; and a third patient had thrombosis of the deep medul- lary veins. Two patients presented with hemorrhagic venous infarcts. The median time from COVID-19 symptoms to a thrombotic event was 7 days (range, 2–7 days).
