Dural sinus thrombosis (DST) may occur due to infection, surgery, hypercoagulability or compression of the sinuses by tumors. DST in the cases of intracranial hematoma may also occur after head injury such that depressed skull fractures or skull fractures that cross the sinus obstruct the blood flow in the sinus.
