Abstract

Children who have cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) are at risk for both emergency and long-term neurological effects. Non-specific symptoms like fever, altered mental status, and localized neurological abnormalities define it. Infection, trauma, prothrombotic diseases and, most critically, iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) are etiologic factors. IDA, which is frequently brought on by excessive cow milk consumption in newborns and toddlers, is a preventable risk factor for CVST. We discuss the case of a 32-month-old female who presented with lethargy and hemiparesis, and was diagnosed with CVST in the context of IDA.
