Cerebral sinovenous thrombosis (CSVT) is a rare but increasingly recognized disease process in children. In the pediatric population, the etiologies of CSVT are multiple and the outcomes are variable. The current therapies for CSVT include anticoagulation, thrombolysis, hydration, surgery, and supportive care. Adult studies, pediatric case studies, and expert opinion form the basis for these treatment strategies. International cooperative efforts are currently being undertaken to collect data on pediatric stroke patients, including CSVT. These multicenter collaborations are needed to increase our understanding of the incidence, risk factors, treatment modalities, and outcomes of CSVT in pediatric populations.
