Abstract

Wegener's granulomatosis is an uncommon disease characterized by variable degrees of disseminated vasculitits involving both small arteries and veins. This disease is rarely associated with thrombosis. Isolated reports of intracranial thromboses of large and small vessels have been described in both adults and children. This report describes the first case of cortical vein thrombosis which was central nervous system manifestation in Wegener's granulomatosis.
