Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare, but complex, disease in adolescents

Takeaway

Why this matters

    This important study is the first to report cerebral venous thrombosis in an adolescent cohort; the findings suggest that, although rare, this condition is complex, with unique epidemiology and worse outcomes compared with adults. The observations provide useful information for clinicians, highlighting the need for specialized management and follow-up.
