PMID:  7847138     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report two cases of congenital occipital dermal sinus in which elongation of the vein of Galen, elevation of the straight sinus, division of the superior sagittal sinus, elevation of the confluence of sinuses, elevation of transverse sinus and narrowing of the torcular angle were observed in the venous phase of cerebral angiography. Enhanced computed tomography (CT) revealed enlargement of the supracerebellar cistern, elevation of the straight sinus and of the confluence of sinuses, but no evidence of intracranial lesions. In order to study the relationship between anomalies in the dural venous sinuses and congenital occipital dermal sinus, we examined both cases from an embryological viewpoint.
