Abstract

Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST) is a rare disease affecting young and female patients in particular. Watershed infarct areas are rarely observed in CVST and in cases where they are observed, they usually occur as a result of the involvement of deep venous structures. The definitive diagnosis of CVST is established by magnetic resonance venography. In addition, this article also includes a review of the cases with established CVST and watershed infarct areas reported in the literature. It should be kept in mind that in patients with watershed infarct areas and severe headache, the etiology may include cerebral venous thrombosis.
