Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is not uncommon, but CVT associated with bilateral internal jugular vein stenosis (BIJVS) is rare. Bilateral internal jugular vein stenting is also a rare procedure. We report on a patient with CVT associated with BIJVS, who was treated successfully using direct thrombolysis and bilateral internal jugular vein stenting.

(Notice that the departments of radiology and neurology cooperated on this one?)

Pre-existing bilateral jugular vein stenosis, such as many of us have with our CCSVI, contributed to the development of central venous thrombosis in this patient. The patient was treated with thrombolysis for the thrombosis and bilateral IJV stenting. Did this save the patient from developing MS?
