Abstract

Two patients with cerebral dural sinus thrombosis (CST) following cisplatin therapy are presented. Cisplatin is a well-recognized risk factor for coagulation disorders and thrombosis, but is not known to be associated with CST. Clinicians should be aware of the potential risk for the development of CST following cisplatin therapy.
