Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a critical condition with significant morbidity and mortality. It primarily affects the young and healthy. CVST presents a diagnostic challenge due to its varied presentation patterns. We report the case of a 11-year-old boy diagnosed with CVST after presenting with a long history of continuous headache. He improved following anticoagulation therapy. Despite thorough investigation, no discernible underlying cause could be identified.
