Plantar Fasciitis and Degenerative Changes in the Mid-foot

Leonardo Roever

We are presenting a case of a 40-year-old lady who presented with sudden loss of consciousness. Computed Tomography scan of her brain revealed the presence of blood in her sub-arachnoid space on her right hemisphere, cerebral oedema, and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis later magnetic Resonance Imaging revealed extensive cerebral venous sinuses thrombosis formation associated with supra and infra-tentorial haemorrhages. Elevated levels of plasma homocysteine and deficient levels of protein S. Patient was anticoagulated with warfarin and INR was monitored. She recovered successfully with no complication of anticoagulation observed. The use of anticoagulation had a favourable outcome in our patient but the evidence of its use lacking to date.
