Abstract

Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a rare variety of cerebrovascular disease that affect patient of any age. CVT represents almost 0.5% – 3% of all the types of stroke, affecting predominantly younger people. The varied clinical presentation, multiple causes and risk factor make the clinical diagnosis difficult. However radiological confirmation of the diagnosis is now easier.

Here we are reporting a case of deep cerebral vein thrombosis leading to unilateral thalamic venous infarct, our case is unusual as there are only few case reports of unilateral thalamic venous infarct, however choroid plexus haemorrhage as seen in our case has not been described earlier.
