In recent years, an increase in dysmenorrhea among adolescents has been observed worldwide. Oral contraceptives are used in gynaecological practice to correct this condition. However, the prescription of drugs belonging to this group often misses the risk of developing vascular complications, such as cerebral venous thrombosis and cerebral venous infarction. Due to the growing percentage of patients with congenital genetic mutations, it is relevant and reasonable to consider the risk factors and clinical signs of venous infarction in adolescents. First, it is necessary to exclude congenital thrombophilia, factor V Leiden and prothrombin G20210A gene mutations, and deficiency of proteins C, S and antithrombin. Of particular notice are the young patients and adolescents with complaints of a first-time, intense, poorly treatable headache (or headache in anamnesis), changes in the eye fundus (edematous, hyperemic optic disks; dilated, plethoric veins in the fundus of the eye). In such cases, a thorough medical history is extremely important, including, in particular, detection of an infectious process, traumatic brain injury, venous thrombosis of any localization; the use of drugs (especially hormonal ones) that can provoke the development of a hypercoagulable state; and investigation of the family history. These measures will help to prevent development of a cerebral venous circulation disorder (venous infarction).
