Thrombosis is the interruption of blood flow by a clot in the blood vessels. Lateral Sinus Thrombosis is when a blood clot forms in the lateral sinuses, also known as the transverse sinuses, which are veins that drain the blood from the back of the head. Occurring mostly in children, Lateral Sinus Thrombosis is very rare and is caused by Otitis media, which is the infection of the middle ear. The symptoms of Lateral Sinus Thrombosis include ear pain, fever, headache, and blurred vision. Lateral Sinus Thrombosis is treated with a combination of antibiotics and surgery to remove the clot. Lateral Sinus Thrombosis was more common before antibiotics, but still exists today with a 10% mortality rate.
