Thrombosis is the interruption of blood flow by a clot in the blood vessels. Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis occurs when a blood clot forms in the Cavernous Sinus, which is a collection of veins in the brain that transports deoxygenated blood from the brain back to the heart. Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis is usually caused by a spreading infection that originated in the nose, ears, teeth, or sinuses. The symptoms of Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis include blurred vision, headaches, and bulging eyes. Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis is life threatening and has a mortality rate of 80-100% when no antibiotics are used, but the mortality rate drops to less than 20% when antibiotics are used immediately. The antibiotics are usually administered through an IV for about 4-8 weeks and surgery can also be used to treat Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis.
