CEREBRAL VENOUS THROMBOSIS SECONDARY TO SARS-COV-2 INFECTION
Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a relatively rare form of neurovascular emergency, and may present as headache, seizure, or focal neurological deficit. It typically has a higher occurrence in younger women. Recently, there are increasingly cases of CVT reported in association with COVID-19, which fall outside the typical demographics, suggesting a hyper-coagulable state attributable to COVID-19. Here, we present a case of CVT in a young gentleman with concomitant COVID-19, who presented with first-onset seizure.
