Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 67-year-old woman with a history of diabetes, hypertension, and remote deep vein thrombosis. It says that due to persistent headache, the patient was ordered to undergo a contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan of the head. CT scan result shows cerebral venous sinus thrombosis secondary to mastoiditis, which was confirmed via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and MR venography. Further, it discusses cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.
