Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is an uncommon condition with incidence resulting in approximately 1-3 % of all strokes. Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis remains often unrecognized initially due to its vague manifestations of symptoms which range from isolated headaches to focal neurological signs and symptoms. CVST is slightly more common in women, particularly in the age group of 20 to 35, due to pregnancy, puerperium and oral contraceptive use (Stam, 2005).
