  Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) has protean manifestations, radiological features and treatment outcomes. The first case that was described in literature was a 45year old man with headache, seizures and delirium. In India the first case series was reported in 1957. At that time it was a lethal disease with no antemortem diagnostic modalities. With current advances in imaging, it has now become easier to diagnose and treat. We present an interesting case of a 43 year-old male with hemorrhagic infarcts in bilateral basal ganglia and bilateral thalami.
