Abstract:

Thromboembolic complications, such as deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, are well recognized in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We describe three cases of cerebral venous thrombosis complicating ulcerative colitis. Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare but potentially devastating complication of IBD, and the diagnosis needs to be considered in any patient with IBD presenting with neurological symptoms.
