What is cerebral venous sinus thrombosis?

A:
Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is a rare type of stroke. This mainly happens in young adults, children, and babies. It happens when a clot in dural venous sinuses of your brain stops blood from draining out and back to your heart. The backed-up blood can leak into brain tissue and cause a stroke. You may experience headache, abnormal vision, any of the symptoms of stroke, and seizures.
