Overview

Objective: Case report of a patient with cerebral venous thrombosis after caesarean section. Case report: We present a case of a 22-year-old patient after an acute caesarean section, which was complicated by cerebral venous thrombosis. The etiology of the thrombosis was multifactorial. Dia­gnosis was determined using imaging methods once the neurological symptoms were expressed. Follow-up care for the patient included comprehensive care in the intensive care unit, including a temporary decompresive craniectomy. Conclusion: Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare disease with a varied clinical manifestation whose development is affected by a number of acquired and congenital factors. The incidence is increased in women in the puerperium, but we can also see it in gynecological practice in young contraception users. Contextual knowledge is essential in early dia­gnosis as well as using a correct treatment strategy with a multidisciplinary approach and interdisciplinary collaboration.
