Cerebral venous infarcts, multiple coronal sections of brain
Bilaterally symmetric hemorrhagic infarcts may be due either to severe systemic hypotension causing arterial border zone infarcts followed by reperfusion or superior sagittal sinus thrombosis with bilateral extension into the cerebral veins (as was the case in this patient). Hemorrhagic arterial border zone infarcts of this severity would usually be accompanied by infarcts and other arterial border zones such as the posterior/middle cerebral artery border zone in the temporal lobes. In addition infarcts involving end arteries in the basal ganglia and thalami would also be expected.
