Hydrocephalus following bilateral jugular venous thrombosis in a child: case report and review of the literature

Pediatric Neurosurgery
Ibrahim IbrahimTony Rizk


Hydrocephalus resulting from bilateral thrombosis of the jugular veins has been rarely described in the literature. We report the case of an 18-month-old girl who was diagnosed with this condition following total parenteral nutrition. We also review the literature relevant to this subject and discuss the pathophysiology of hydrocephalus in the setting of bilateral jugular venous thrombosis.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
