Review Article


Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. Despite its primarily respiratory involvement, an increased propensity for systemic inflammation, neuroinvasion, and thromboembolic events has been reported. This systemic prothrombotic state may predispose to cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), which is an uncommon cerebrovascular disease with hypercoagulability as one of its important risk factors. We conducted a literature search using the PubMed electronic database and reviewed the published literature for a possible association of CVST with the COVID-19 disease.
