Cerebral venous thrombosis in an adolescent with ulcerative colitis (Journal article)

Diakou, M./ Kostadima, V./ Giannopoulos, S./ Zikou, A. K./ Argyropoulou, M. I./ Kyritsis, A. P.

We describe a 17-year-old Caucasian adolescent with ulcerative colitis who presented with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Laboratory investigation revealed low protein S levels. With successful management the patient remained without neurologic sequalae. Although there may be an association between ulcerative colitis and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, the exact pathophysiologic mechanism remains unknown.
