Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis with Internal Jugular Venous Thrombosis in a Male Patient with Nephrotic Syndrome

Turk Neurosurg. 2015;25(6):980-3. doi: 10.5137/1019-5149.JTN.11355-14.1.


Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis with internal jugular vein thrombosis is not reported as a complication in nephrotic syndrome. We report a 40-year-old male with nephrotic syndrome, who had headache during his hospitalization. Conventional diagnostic tests showed extensive thrombosis at the proximal part of superior sagittal sinus, left cortical vein, left sigmoid-transverse sinus and left internal jugular vein. The patient underwent medical treatment and was discharged in good health after 2 weeks. The aim of this study is to report a novel case of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis with internal jugular venous thrombosis in a male patient with nephrotic syndrome.
