An irregularly shaped venous space in the dura mater at either side of the sphenoid bone.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the CRANIAL SINUSES, large endothelium-lined venous channels situated within the SKULL. Intracranial sinuses, also called cranial venous sinuses, include the superior sagittal, cavernous, lateral, petrous sinuses, and many others. Cranial sinus thrombosis can lead to severe HEADACHE; SEIZURE; and other neurological defects.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the SUPERIOR SAGITTAL SINUS or the inferior sagittal sinus. Sagittal sinus thrombosis can result from infections, hematological disorders, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. Clinical features are primarily related to the increased intracranial pressure causing HEADACHE; NAUSEA; and VOMITING. Severe cases can evolve to SEIZURES or COMA.
Inflammation of the NASAL MUCOSA in the SPHENOID SINUS. Isolated sphenoid sinusitis is uncommon. It usually occurs in conjunction with other paranasal sinusitis.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the LATERAL SINUSES. This condition is often associated with ear infections (OTITIS MEDIA or MASTOIDITIS) without antibiotic treatment. In developed nations, lateral sinus thrombosis can result from CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; THROMBOPHILIA; and other conditions. Clinical features include HEADACHE; VERTIGO; and increased intracranial pressure.

Cavernous sinus thrombosis and cerebral infarction caused by Fusobacterium nucleatum infection. (1/20)

We report an unusual case of fusobacterial infection with secondary intracranial invasion. The condition was complicated by a cavernous sinus thrombosis and ischemic stroke. The patient was a 63-year-old woman with no history of systemic disease who had undergone a tooth extraction before the onset of symptoms. She initially suffered from sphenomaxillary sinusitis and a cavernous sinus thrombosis, and subsequently developed meningitis. Cerebrospinal fluid examination suggested a pyogenic infection. Anaerobic culture revealed Fusobacterium nucleatum. However, despite immediate antibiotic therapy, her condition remained unstable over the next few days, and she eventually developed an ischemic stroke. We describe our experience in the management of this case of anaerobic meningitis and the unusual complication of ischemic stroke; this case suggests that more aggressive therapy in addition to empirical antibiotics may be warranted.  (+info)

Odontogenic infections. Complications. Systemic manifestations. (2/20)

The term, odontogenic infection refers to an infection that originates in the tooth proper or in the tissues that closely surround it; said infection then progresses along the periodontia down to the apex, involving periapical bone and from this area, it then spreads through the bone and periosteum towards near-by or more distant structures. The relevance of this type of infection lies in that it can cause infections that compromise more distant structures (via direct spread and distant spread), for example, intracraneal, retropharyngeal and pulmonary pleural infections. Dissemination by means of the bloodstream can lead to rheumatic problems and deposits on the valves of the heart (endocarditis), etc. The conditions or factors that influence the spread of infection are dependent on the balance between patient-related conditions and microorganism-related conditions. The virulence of the affecting germs is dependent upon their quality and quantity and is one of the microbiological conditions that influences the infection. It is this virulence that promotes infectious invasion and the deleterious effects the microbe will have on the host. Patient-related conditions include certain systemic factors that determine host resistance, which may be impaired in situations such as immunodeficiency syndrome or in brittle diabetes, as well as local factors that will also exert their impact on the spread of the infection.  (+info)

Venous infarction secondary to septic cavernous sinus thrombosis. (3/20)

A 65-year-old woman with poorly controlled diabetes presented bilateral miosis, bilateral abducens nerve palsy, and left hemiparesis. On MRI, cavernous sinus thrombosis, subdural empyema and hemorrhagic infarction in the frontotemporal lobe were detected. Cerebral angiogram revealed filling defect in the cavernous sinus with venous congestion but no involvement of internal carotid artery. Postmortem examination demonstrated hemorrhagic infarction in the right frontotemporal lobe as well as hemorrhagic necrosis of the pituitary gland. It should be noted that venous congestion due to cavernous sinus thrombosis may cause these complications.  (+info)

Septic cavernous sinus thrombosis complicated by narrowing of the internal carotid artery, subarachnoid abscess and multiple pulmonary septic emboli. (4/20)

A 56-year-old woman was admitted because of a high fever, right ptosis, chemosis, proptosis and ocular muscle palsy. Cranial MRI revealed a cavernous sinus thrombosis and a subarachnoid abscess. Carotid angio-gram demonstrated marked stenosis as well as aneurismal formation of the right internal carotid artery at the intracavernous portion. Chest radiograph showed bilateral multiple pulmonary nodules, some of which contained a cavity. Blood culture was positive for Streptococcus constellatus. She was diagnosed with septic cavernous sinus thrombosis complicated by narrowing of the internal carotid artery, subarachnoid abscess and multiple pulmonary septic emboli. She recovered with partial ocular sequelae as a result of seven weeks of intravenous antimicrobial therapy.  (+info)

Cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis masquerading as ischaemic stroke: a catastrophic pitfall in any emergency department. (5/20)

Cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis is a clinically rare but fatal disease that progresses rapidly. Its initial presentation is always neglected by emergency physicians, until typical symptoms and signs are noted or thin-slice brain CT results obtained, by which time it is already too late. A case of cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis caused by sinusitis, which initially masqueraded as ischaemic stroke, is reported. Blindness of the left eye was the outcome. High suspicion, accurate diagnosis and aggressive antibiotic treatment are emphasised.  (+info)

Perimesencephalic non-aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage caused by cavernous sinus thrombosis: case report. (6/20)

A 37-year-old man presented with perimesencephalic non-aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage associated with cavernous sinus thrombosis. Anticoagulant therapy was administered to treat the cavernous sinus thrombosis, but provoked severe intracranial hemorrhage, severely disabling the patient. Perimesencephalic non-aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage is a benign clinical entity with generally good prognosis, but the association with cavernous sinus thrombosis requires careful investigation prior to treatment.  (+info)

Recombinant activated factor VII for treatment of refractory hemorrhage after surgery for acute aortic dissection. (7/20)

Despite appropriate treatment, surgery for aortic dissection is frequently associated with bleeding problems. In these series we report on the employment of recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) for refractory hemorrhage after emergency surgery for acute type A aortic dissection, used to face the problems of postoperative blood loss and transfusion requirements. Despite the good results of the therapy, a patient presented with thrombosis of the left cavernous sinus. Although a risk of thromboembolic complications has to be considered, rFVIIa is a reasonable rescue option in life-threatening hemorrhage and enlarges our hemostatic armamentarium in surgery for acute aortic dissection.  (+info)

Transient pituitary enlargement with central hypogonadism secondary to bilateral cavernous sinus thrombosis: pituitary oedema? (8/20)

 (+info)

In a review of the worlds literature up to 1936 Cavenagh1 could find only a few reported recoveries from septic cavernous sinus thrombophlebitis. The septic type as described by Grove2 is that in which the thrombosis reaches the cavernous sinus by way of its afferent vessels. With the advent of the sulfonamides six other instances of recovery have been recorded.3, 4, 5, 6 Recently Nicholson and Anderson7 reported another case successfully treated by penicillin.. The case to be reported is of interest not only because of the recovery, but because it was successfully treated by a combination of sulfonamides and ...

Cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST) is the formation of a blood clot within the cavernous sinus, a cavity at the base of the brain which drains deoxygenated blood from the brain back to the heart. The cause is usually from a spreading infection in the nose, sinuses, ears, or teeth. Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus are often the associated bacteria. Cavernous sinus thrombosis symptoms include: decrease or loss of vision, chemosis, exophthalmos (bulging eyes), headaches, and paralysis of the cranial nerves which course through the cavernous sinus. This infection is life-threatening and requires immediate treatment, which usually includes antibiotics and sometimes surgical drainage. The clinical presentation of CST can be varied. Both acute, fulminant disease and indolent, subacute presentations have been reported in the literature. The most common signs of CST are related to anatomical structures affected within the cavernous sinus, notably cranial nerves III-VI, as well as symptoms resulting ...

Community-acquired meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) occurring among hospital isolates in Malaysia has not been reported previously. As CA-MRSA reported worldwide has been shown to carry SCCmec types IV and V, the aim of this study was to determine the SCCmec types of MRSA strains collected in Malaysia from November 2006 to June 2008. From a total of 628 MRSA isolates, 20 were SCCmec type IV, whilst the rest were type III. Further characterization of SCCmec type IV strains revealed 11 sequence types (STs), including ST22, with the majority being ST30/Panton-Valentine leukocidin positive. Eight out of nine CA-MRSA were ST30, one was ST80, and all were sensitive to co-trimoxazole and gentamicin. Five new STs designated ST1284, ST1285, ST1286, ST1287 and ST1288 were discovered, suggesting the emergence of novel clones of MRSA circulating in Malaysian hospitals. The discovery of the ST22 strain is a cause for concern because of its ability to replace existing predominant clones in certain
In some cases, you may also be given a medication called heparin to help dissolve the clot and prevent further clots. Heparin is an anticoagulant medication, which means it makes the blood less sticky. There are some uncertainties about using anticoagulants to treat cavernous sinus thrombosis, such as when they should be used and for how long. Theres also a risk of provoking serious problems, such as excessive bleeding (haemorrhaging).. As cavernous sinus thrombosis is so rare, its difficult to study, which means theres a lack of evidence regarding the use of anticoagulants to treat it. However, the small amount of research that does exist seems to suggest that anticoagulants can be an effective treatment for some people, and most doctors agree it should be used where appropriate. ...

In most cases of cavernous sinus thrombosis, a blood clot forms in the cavernous sinuses to try to prevent bacteria spreading further into the body. This is known as thrombosis.. However, the clot usually blocks the flow of blood away from the brain, which increases the pressure in the cavernous sinuses and can damage the brain, eyes and the nerves running between them.. In addition, the blood clot is often unable to prevent the spread of infection. If the condition is left untreated, the infection can spread through the bloodstream, causing blood poisoning (sepsis). ...

Cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST) is mainly ascribed to infection of the sphenoid and ethmoid sinuses. The infection may spread due to retrograde thrombophlebitis involving the ophthalmic vein or direct extension. Initially, the patient may suffer from periorbital edema, diplopia, photophobia, headache and fever.. Inflammatory edema is also called preseptal or periorbital cellulite. Eyelids swell near the orbital septum, but the orbits soft tissues are not affected. The septum prevents infection from spreading into the orbit. If extra ocular movement stops, soft tissues are also affected.. Orbital abscess means pus accumulation within the tissue of the orbit. This complication may lead to proptosis, which means forward displacement or projection of the eyeball, and loss of vision. The abscess may also limit the extra ocular movement.. Orbital cellulite implies inflammation and edema of the orbit area, but there is no abscess. Partial or complete paralysis of eye muscles (ophthalmoplegia), ...

CVT is characterised by a variety of clinical manifestations depending on the site involved. Occlusion of the cerebral cortical veins can result in venous infarction with associated focal neurological symptoms and signs. Occlusion of the major venous sinuses usually results in the development of intracranial hypertension from increased venous pressure and impaired absorption of cerebrospinal fluid, leading to headache, vomiting and papilloedema. Cavernous sinus thrombosis may also lead to a painful eye and sometimes exophthalmos.. As previously mentioned, pregnancy induces several changes in the coagulation system, which persist into the puerperium resulting in a prothrombotic state. These have all been regarded as important factors contributing to the risk of CVT in pregnancy and the puerperium. The first description of puerperal CVT was in 1828,64 and since then the relationship of CVT to pregnancy and the puerperium has been well documented.65 The likelihood that stroke is of venous origin is ...

Lipoprotein concentrations have been associated with the major risk of bleeding events. However, whether plasma levels of LDL-C are associated with the risk of biopsy-related endobronchial hemorrhage remain elusive. Therefore, the present study was initiated to investigate the explicit association of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) with endobronchial biopsy (EBB)-induced refractory hemorrhage in patients with lung cancer. This retrospective study included a total of 659 consecutive patients with lung cancer who had undergone EBB at a tertiary hospital between January 2014 and April 2018. Using multiple regression analysis, the association between LDL-C and the risk of EBB-induced refractory hemorrhage was assessed after adjusting for potential confounding factors. A significant proportion (13.8%, 91/659) of the patients experienced refractory hemorrhage following EBB. In multivariate regression analysis, higher plasma LDL-C concentrations were associated with increased risk of EBB-induced
Staphylococcus aureus is a Gram-positive commensal bacterium, that asymptomatically colonizes human skin and mucosal surfaces. Upon opportune conditions, such as immunodeficiency or breached barriers of the host, it can cause a plethora of infections ranging from local, superficial infections to life-threatening diseases. Despite being regarded as an extracellular pathogen, S. aureus can invade and survive within non-phagocytic and phagocytic cells. Eventually, the pathogen escapes from the host cell resulting in killing of the host cell, which is associated with tissue destruction and spread of infection. However, the exact molecular mechanisms underlying S. aureus-induced host cell death remain to be elucidated. In the present work, a genome-wide haploid genetic screen was performed to identify host cell genes crucial for S. aureus intracellular cytotoxicity. A mutant library of the haploid cell line HAP1 was infected with the pathogen and cells surviving the infection were selected. Twelve genes
Cavernous sinus thrombosis is a severe encephalic complication of the cervicofacial infections that can lead to death if not treated in adequate time.

OC can be caused by primary infection of the sinuses, skin, or teeth. Nearly two thirds of cases, 64%, are from primary sinus infection, which is the most common cause of orbital inflammation, and most of these are of bacterial origin [4]; 16% of cases come from cutaneous lesions, such as eczema, furuncles, or facial cellulitis [4]. Odontogenic OC (OOC) is a less frequent but important cause of orbital infection, with a poor prognosis. In a prior series, 45.8% of patients with OOC had final vision of light perception or worse [5].. The most common pathway of spread of OOC infection is through the paranasal sinuses; less common is the spread from premaxillary soft tissues to the orbit [6].. The difficulty of this case was that the patient manifested no odontogenic problems and did not use immunosuppressive therapies.

Eighteen of the patients also had cerebral angiography. MR was superior to CT in differentiating parasellar aneurysms from neoplastic masses. MR was also superior to both CT and angiography in defining the relationships of cavernous sinus neoplasms to the internal carotid artery, pituitary gland, optic chiasm, infundibulum, and fifth cranial nerves. Only in the definition of bone erosion or hyperostosis was MR inferior to another method (CT). We conclude that MR should be the initial diagnostic study in patients with symptoms of a parasellar mass, with supplementation when necessary by CT and angiography.. AB - Twenty-one ...

An inflamed vein that also contains a blood clot is known as a condition called thrombophlebitis. Superficial thrombophlebitis occurs near the surface of the skin. A more serious condition, deep thrombophlebitis (deep venous thrombosis or DVT) affects the veins deep below the skins surface. These veins are a part of the muscular structure, making this a greater risk. Blood flow is limited, swelling may occur, and dermatitis may develop.

I. What every physician needs to know. The classification of orbital infections is based on a five-tier system, which is as follows: Group I (periorbital cellulitis, which is also known as preseptal cellulitis), Group II (orbital cellulitis), Group III (subperiosteal abscess), Group IV (orbital abscess), and Group V (cavernous sinus thrombosis). Periorbital/preseptal cellulitis affects structures…. ...
Radiotherapy is an emerging treatment for hemangioma of the cavernous sinus because of its efficacy and safety in comparison with surgery. Recently, SRS showed favorable treatment results in patients with hemangioma of the cavernous sinus [12-14,18]. However, when performing radiosurgery on tumors located near the optic apparatus, radiation oncologists should be concerned about toxicities, especially those like radiation-induced optic neuropathy (RION). According to previous studies, the risk of radiation-related sequelae (for example, cranial nerve palsies) might be higher if the beneficial effects of fractionation are not used [10,19]. The risk of RION is the primary limitation of single-fraction SRS for many patients with parasellar lesions, such as cavernous sinus hemangioma. As part of the Quantitative Analysis of Normal Tissue Effects in the Clinic (QUANTEC) initiative, Mayo et al. [20] reviewed the available literature to determine the dose-volume relationship of RION. For single-fraction ...

Thrombophlebitis is the inflammation of a vein with blood clot formation inside the vein at the site of inflammation. Thrombophlebitis is also known as phlebitis, phlebothrombosis, and venous thrombosis. If the inflammation component is minor, the disease is usually called venous or phlebothrombosis. Thrombophlebitis can occur in both deep veins and superficial veins, but most oftenoccurs in the superficial veins of the legs. When thrombophlebitis occurs ina superficial vein, one that is near the surface of the skin and is visibleto the eye, the disease is called superficial thrombophlebitis. Any form of injury to a blood vessel can result in thrombophlebitis. In the case of superficial thrombophlebitis, the blood clot usually attaches firmly to the wall ofthe affected blood vein. Since superficial blood veins do not have muscles that massage the veins, blood clots in superficial veins tend to remain wherethey form and seldom break loose.. When thrombophlebitis occurs in a deep vein, a vein that ...
Treatment of Thrombo means clot. Phlebitis is inflammation of a vein. Thrombophlebitis occurs when a blood clot causes inflammation in one or more of your veins, typically in your legs. On rare occasions, thrombophlebitis often shortened to phlebitis can affect veins in your arms or neck, The affected vein may be near the surface of your skin, causing superficial thrombophlebitis, or deep within a muscle, causing deep vein thrombosis. A clot in a deep vein increases your risk of serious health problems, including a dislodged clot traveling to your lungs and blocking a pulmonary artery, Thrombophlebitis often is caused by prolonged inactivity, such as from sitting during a long period of travel in an airplane or automobile or from lengthy bed rest after surgery. Such inactivity decreases blood flow through your veins and may cause a clot to form. Paralysis, certain types of cancer and use of the hormone estrogen also may lead to thrombophlebitis. An inherited tendency for blood clots places you at higher

ICH is a heterogeneous disease mainly due to functional defects of GnRH neurons. Recent studies have described the importance of prokineticin pathway in the pathogenesis of these defects. In a series of 166 ICH patients we found germline mutations affecting this pathway in about 10% of the cases. PROKR2 gene analysis revealed 3 novel (V158I, T260M, V334M) and 4 already known (L173R, R268C, V274D, V331M) mutations affecting different transmembrane and intracellular regions of this G protein coupled receptor (GPCR). For the first time, we evaluate the functional effects of these mutations on the two different PROKR2-dependent signalling pathways: IP3-Ca2+ (via Gq coupling) and cAMP (via Gs coupling) by HTRF-BRET and RIA techniques. At FACS analysis, the expression levels in CHO-K1 cells were similar to the WT in the case of V158I, V331M, V334M and reduced by 50% in the case of the other mutants. Interestingly, functional studies showed highly variable degrees of impairment in both signalling ...
