Özet

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis with internal jugular vein thrombosis is not reported as a complication in nephrotic syndrome. We report a 40-year-old male with nephrotic syndrome, who had headache during his hospitalization. Conventional diagnostic tests showed extensive thrombosis at the proximal part of superior sagittal sinus, left cortical vein, left sigmoid-transverse sinus and left internal jugular vein. The patient underwent medical treatment and was discharged in good health after 2 weeks. The aim of this study is to report a novel case of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis with internal jugular venous thrombosis in a male patient with nephrotic syndrome.
