Cerebral vein and dural sinus thrombosis comprises only 0.5% of all strokes but is one of the most litigated medical diagnoses due to the high rate of underdiagnosis and high probability of neurologic decline without early and aggressive intervention. In this week's installment, Ali Hamedani puts Jim Siegler in the hot seat to go over the clinical and radiographic manifestations of this condition, treatment, and prognosis.

Produced by Ali Hamedani and James E Siegler. Music by Andy Cohen, MMFFF, Loyalty Freak Music, Steve Combs, Josh Woodward. BrainWaves' podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used for routine clinical decision-making.
