PEREZ NELLAR, Jesús; SCHERLE MATAMOROS, Claudio  y  ROSELLO SILVA, Héctor. Cerebral venous thrombosis. Rev cubana med [online]. 2007, vol.46, n.3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-302X.

Cerebral venous thrombosis accounts for 0.5 % of the stroke and affects more frequently young persons with congenital or acquired risk factors. It has variable  clinical manifestations that together with an adequate neuroimaging study allow to make the diagnosis. The venography by magnetic resonance or computerized tomography is the main test of diagnostic confirmation. In this review, emphasis is made on the basic clinical aspects for its diagnosis and treatment, consisting in the control of the causing factors if possible, the symptomatic treatment, especially of endocranial hypertension, and the use of anticoagulants.

Palabras clave : Thrombosis of cerebral sinuses and veins; diagnosis; treatment.
