  • Abstract  

    Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) causing cerebral infarction is noted in the younger population in India and other countries, with a multitude of varying features at presentation. Typical features from mass effect due to acute and subacute complications of CVST, characteristically present with signs of neurological deficits due to raised intracranial pressure. In rare instances, patients afflicted with CVST present with isolated neuropsychiatric symptoms. We delve into this case of a middle aged woman with subacute complications whose neurological features were masked, with the sole findings of behavioral disturbance and bradycardia, who had no known previous documented psychiatric illness.
