Abstract
Prothrombin gene G20210A mutation is a risk factor for the development of deep vein thrombosis. We present a 6 year old Egyptian boy who had vomiting associated with headache and dizziness. His conscious level was normal with neither focal neurological signs nor papilledema. Brain computed tomographic scan, magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance venography (MRV) revealed thrombosis of the superior sagittal and left transverse sinuses. The patient was heterozygous for prothrombin gene G20210A mutation. He has received enoxaparin and warfarin. Brain imaging follow-up, after 1 month, showed complete resolution of the thrombus. The child was followed up for 1 year and he was very healthy. Cerebral venous thrombosis must be considered in the differential diagnosis of any neurological symptoms, even mild symptoms and prothrombin gene G20210A mutation must be considered in the screening of Egyptian children. Early diagnosis and treatment can be a good prognostic index.
