Transverse sinus, sigmoid sinus and jugular bulb can normally show asymmetric signal intensity and enhancement and is more frequent on left due to compressive effect of left brachiocephalic vein during respiratory cycle.21 Arachnoid granulations are normal structures that protrude into the dural sinus
lumen or lateral lacunae.

Non-parenchymal CNS involvement mainly presents with intracranial hypertension due to dural sinus
Intracranial venous and dural sinus
thrombosis due to protein S deficiency in a patient with AIDS.
This condition is also referred to as cortical venous, cerebral sinus, cerebral venous sinus, or dural sinus
ONSF has also been performed in cases of sight threatening papilledema secondary to dural sinus
thrombosis or intracranial mass.
We report a rare case of NPSLE with coexistence of dural sinus
thrombosis and intracerebral hemorrhage that had an inadequate response to high-dose corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide but responded dramatically to anticoagulation.
referred to AG as "giant" when they fill the lumen of a dural sinus
, causing local dilatation or filling defects .
Ferro et al., stated that their multicentre prospective series study on cerebral vein and dural sinus
thrombosis was the start of gaining reliable evidence on demographical features and prognostic factors of patients with CVST.1 In the current study records of patients with various neurological problems who had presented to the emergency department (ED) and were diagnosed with CVST and were evaluated by using different parameters such as distribution of age and gender, time between onset and presentation, clinical findings, predisposing factors, MPV and PDW values, neuroimaging findings and their treatment regime were reviewed.
The differential diagnosis for extra-axial masses on CT is the following: acute subdural hematoma; epidural hematoma; foreign body; meningioma; meningeal metastases; dural sinus
thrombosis; cortical venous thrombosis; neurosarcoidosis; lymphoma; tuberculosis; dural A-V fistula; and rarely, extramedullary hematopoiesis; leukemia; venous varix; hemangiopericytoma; and malignant tumor.
No intracranial extension was seen, but the MRI did identify a thrombosis in the adjacent transverse dural sinus
that extended to the sigmoid sinus and internal jugular vein (figure 2 A).
