Abstract

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is a rare type of cerebrovascular disease with highly variable clinical features. Although intracranial hemorrhage can occur in a patient with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, the development of subdural hemorrhage has been infrequently reported. Herein we report a 49-year-old woman with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis who developed subdural hemorrhage. We presumed that the elevation of venous or capillary pressure caused by venous sinus thrombosis played an important role in the development of subdural hemorrhage.
