Abstract: Among the many infective causes of cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT), viral hepatitis is been regarded as a rare associated condition. We report on a 56-years-old man presenting CVT associated with hepatitis B and C coinfections outlining probable pathogenic mechanisms. We suggest that virus B and C serology should be performed in the cases of cerebral venous thrombosis with unknown etiology.
Dentre as várias causas infecciosas de trombose venosa cerebral (TVC), a hepatite viral tem sido reconhecida como causa rara de TVC. Relatamos sobre um homem de 56 anos com TVC associada a coinfecção pelos vírus B e C da hepatite, ressaltando possíveis mecanismos patogênicos. Sugerimos que sorologia para vírus da hepatite B e C deveria ser solicitado em todos os casos de TVC de origem indeterminada.
