Abstract
Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST) in children is rare and its cause is multifactorial. The clinical manifestations of CVST vary and may cause long-term neurological sequelae and even death on rare occasion. In this case, a 15 year old boy presented with severe headache and vomiting for 1 day. Brain MRI with venography revealed multiple lesions of CVST in superior sagittal sinus and the left transverse sinus. Anticoagulation therapy was performed for 3 months, which led to the complete resolution in superior sagittal sinus and partial resolution in left transverse sinus.
