Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a potentially lifethreatening condition. It may lead to a considerable mortality if not recognized and treated in a timely manner [1,2]. Nonetheless, Due to its nonspecific clinical presentations, early diagnosis is not always possible. There are several predisposing factors for CVST, of which the most common conditions are hereditary thrombophilia, post-operative states; and use of oral contraceptives . Hereby we report an interesting case of CVST following brain contusion. It is important to always keep a high degree of suspicion for CVST, even when other diagnoses seem more possible.
