Cerebral venous thrombosis is an uncommon event of stroke in childhood. Its origin is multifactorial and often it manifests with nonspecific symptoms that may overlap with underlying predisposing factors. Anti-myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) antibody syndrome is a group of recently recognized acquired demyelinating diseases that occur more commonly in children, usually, with a favorable outcome. The association between cerebral venous thrombosis and demyelinating syndrome has been reported but their clinical relationship is matter of debate and various hypotheses have been advanced including intravenous (IV) steroid therapy and/or the consequence of a shared inflammatory-thrombotic process. Herein, we report the case of a child with anti-MOG antibody syndromes who developed a thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus and of the right Trolard's vein.

Abstract

Cerebral venous thrombosis is an uncommon event of stroke in childhood. Its origin is multifactorial and often it manifests with nonspecific symptoms that may overlap with underlying predisposing factors. Anti-myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) antibody syndrome is a group of recently recognized acquired demyelinating diseases that occur more commonly in children, usually, with a favorable outcome. The association between cerebral venous thrombosis and demyelinating syndrome has been reported but their clinical relationship is matter of debate and various hypotheses have been advanced including intravenous (IV) steroid therapy and/or the consequence of a shared inflammatory-thrombotic process. Herein, we report the case of a child with anti-MOG antibody syndromes who developed a thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus and of the right Trolard's vein.
