Its vague, non-specific presentation makes it a difficult and challenging diagnosis that needs an extensive workup especially in young patients. Outcome and prognosis depend mainly on early diagnosis and treatment. Here we discuss the clinical presentation, diagnosis and the treatment of a young woman diagnosed with ICVT with acute ischaemic venous stroke, in the setting of eclampsia and family history of coagulation disease.Abstract: Copyright (c) BMJ Publishing Group Limited 2019.
