Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Concurrent development of retinal venous drainage and cerebral venous thrombosis has not been reported. Case Description We describe a 23-year-old man with bilateral central retinal vein occlusions and cerebral venous thrombosis. Initially observed bilateral hemorrhagic retinopathy and thrombus in the right transverse sinus of the patient began to resolve after 2 weeks of low-molecular-weight heparin. Hemorrhagic retinopathy progressively improved to previous visual acuity and the right lateral sinus remained patent by maintenance of anticoagulation with warfarin.
CONCLUSION: The present case shows effectiveness of low-molecular-weight heparin for the initial management of hemorrhagic retinopathy of central retinal vein occlusion combined with cerebral venous thrombosis.
