Case Report of a 13-Year-Old Female With Trauma Secondary to a Fall From a Golf Cart, Found to Have Intraparenchymal & Subarachnoid Hemorrhages With Transverse Sinus Thrombosis.
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is the occlusion of cerebral veins of the brain secondary to blood clot formation. These can result in increased intracranial pressure, cerebral edema, and may even have fatal consequences such as a stroke. Despite CVSTs being considered a rare pathology, these are said to have an increased incidence in the pediatric population. These individuals with CVST are often asymptomatic causing physicians to often overlook and delay possibly life-saving interventions. The current literature is lacking on CVST examples in the "older" range of the pediatric population, specifically teenagers. Here we present the case of a 13-year-old female with trauma secondary to a fall from a golf cart, who was found to have intraparenchymal and subarachnoid hemorrhages with transverse sinus thrombosis.
