Cerebral Venous Thrombosis results from blockage of venous sinus by a partially hindering thrombus that gradually progresses to obstruct it completely. Headaches, blurry vision, nausea, fatigue and coma are the visible symptoms of CVT. CVT can be triggered by nephrotic syndrome, thrombophilia, meningitis, sickle cell anemia or even dehydration. Anticoagulation can be used to suppress formation of blood clot.
