Spontaneous isolated non-haemorrhagic thrombosis in a child with development venous anomaly: case report and review of the literature
- 149 Downloads
The natural history of developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) is said to be relatively benign.
We herein report the clinical case of a 9-year-old female child with sudden right hemiparesis. An ischaemic infarct secondary to an isolated spontaneous thrombosis of a DVA was diagnosed by brain magnetic resonance imaging, further confirmed by digital subtraction angiography.
Considering the therapeutic options, early diagnosis is mandatory.
