Radiologists play an important role in the early detection of paediatric CSVT, since symptoms are often non-specific.


MRI is modality of choice for its diagnosis, although CT may be used in the emergency room.


Most frequent etiologies in paediatric population are neonatal dehydration and infectious spread of otomastoiditis. Procoagulant drugs are important source of CSVT in patients with hematological disorders, especially leukemia.


Clinical manifestations of CSVT in neonates were seizures whereas a decreased level of consciousness, headache and focal neurologic signs were more common in non-neonates.


Venous infarcts, hydrocephalus and the presence of seizures at diagnosis predicted a worse neurologic outcome.
