Internal Cerebral Vein Thrombosis: A Case Report

Internal Cerebral Vein Thrombosis: A Case Report Abstract Isolated internal cerebral vein thrombosis is a rare occurrence. It is generally associated with severe neurologic deficits leading to death. The case described in this report suggests that it can occur without catastrophic symptoms and with only minor sequelae. REPORT OF A CASE A 29-year-old, right-handed man, with a 30-month history of intermittent neurologic abnormalities, had a right facial weakness diagnosed as Bell's palsy in August 1978. His condition was treated with prednisone; the weakness resolved in several days. After a symptom-free interval of about two weeks, he noted increasing fatigue and headache during the new two months. In November, the headaches were severe, he became somnolent and confused, and memory deficits and intermittent vomiting developed. During this time, he had a right-sided facial weakness lasting one day, two brief episodes of dysphasia, alternating left and right hemiparesthesias, and a 24-hour episode of right 24-hour paresis, all of which occurred References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Isolated internal cerebral vein thrombosis is a rare occurrence. It is generally associated with severe neurologic deficits leading to death. The case described in this report suggests that it can occur without catastrophic symptoms and with only minor sequelae. REPORT OF A CASE A 29-year-old, right-handed man, with a 30-month history of intermittent neurologic abnormalities, had a right facial weakness diagnosed as Bell's palsy in August 1978. His condition was treated with prednisone; the weakness resolved in several days. After a symptom-free interval of about two weeks, he noted increasing fatigue and headache during the new two months. In November, the headaches were severe, he became somnolent and confused, and memory deficits and intermittent vomiting developed. During this time, he had a right-sided facial weakness lasting one day, two brief episodes of dysphasia, alternating left and right hemiparesthesias, and a 24-hour episode of right 24-hour paresis, all of which occurred References 1.
