Severe headache, blurry vision, stiff neck. Ct scan normal. ER doc felt confident. Could A CT scan have missed a cavernous sinus thrombosis?

Severe headache, blurry vision, stiff neck. Ct scan normal. ER doc felt confident. Could A CT scan have missed a cavernous sinus thrombosis?

It depends: on the technical parameters of the scan. If it was performed without IV contrast or performed as a "routine" head CT not specifically tailored to look for cavernous sinus thrombosis, yes. CST is a clinical diagnosis, so if there was no clinical suspicion, there would be no reason to tailor the CT scan. ...Read more

OCT of Optic nerves: If one of the pupils is dilated then it may be an emergency aneurysm. See an ophthalmologist or a neurologist urgently. If not, you need to have an oct exam of the optic nerves to see if the blurriness in the lazy eye is loss of nerve fiber layer. Oct can also show if you have a condition known as benign intracranial pressure. Then your eye doctor will refer to a neurologist for a spinal tap. ...Read more
