Thrombosis of the right vein of Labbé: radiological and clinical findings

Neuroradiology. 1993;35(3):202-4. doi: 10.1007/BF00588494.


A rare case of aseptic thrombosis of the right vein of Labbé in a young woman is reported. Cerebral venous thrombosis was suggested by computed tomography and confirmed by angiography. Mild left-sided neurological deficits resolved almost completely. The combination of a nonspecific clinical picture with an atypical lesion on CT may favour the diagnosis of cortical venous thrombosis.
