Objective: We described a case of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in a patient taking multiple supplements as part of a naturopathic anti-aging regimen.
Methods: Case report.
Results: The patient presented with a thalamic infarct associated with a thrombus in the vein of Galen. He reported no previous history of endocrinopathy and no known hypercoagulability risk factors. He was treated with therapeutic anticoagulation resulting in improvement. Diagnostic workup revealed hyperthyroidism and gonadotrophic deficiency attributed to significant supplement medicine usage.
Conclusion: This case highlights a potential risk of dietary supplements. Use of these supplements may be a risk factor for idiopathic cerebral venous thrombosis.
