In one review, septic thrombosis most frequently involved the cavernous sinuses (96 cases), followed by the lateral sinus (64 cases) and the superior sagittal sinus (23 cases) [100]. In addition to local infection, systemic infection can be complicated by CVST. Numerous agents have been reported (table 2) and include bacteria (Mycobacterium tuberculosis [101–104], Mycoplasma pneumoniae [105], Burkholderia pseudomallei [106], Fusobacterium necrophorum [107–109], and Salmonella paratyphi [110]), viruses (measles [111], varicella-zoster virus [112, 113], hepatitis virus B and C [114–116], immunodeficiency virus [117–119], and cytomegalovirus [119]), spirochetae (Lepstospira interrogans [120], and Treponema pallidum [121]), parasitae (Plasmodium falciparum [122, 123], and Trichinella spiralis [124, 125]), and fungi (Rhizopus species [126–128], Aspergillus fumigatus [129–134], and Coccidioides immitis [135]).
