Lateral Sinus Thrombosis: Complication of Minor Head Injury
Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 73:629-635, Nehme, J.,et al, 2009

Article Abstract
Lateral sinus thrombosis seldomly occurs following a minor head injury. This entity is difficult to diagnose and one should exercise a high degree of suspicion when confronted with an ambiguous neurological status following a closed head trauma. The most accurate imaging test according to our experience is a multiple detector row computerized tomography (MDCT) venography completed at the time of the presentation. The indication to proceed with an MRI has to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Anticoagulation is reserved for patients presenting a papilledema or for patients complaining of persistent headaches, vomiting, or disequilibrium.
