Bilateral thalamic infarction may result from venous rather than arterial obstruction.

Abstract

Two patients are presented with bilateral thalamic infarcts, in whom magnetic resonance venography (MRV) revealed venous occlusion. These cases stress the notion that bilateral thalamic infarcts may result from venous rather than arterial obstruction, which requires different evaluation and eventual treatment.
