A 34 year-old patient was admitted in our department for diplopia associated with headache. In his background, he was followed in the Internal Medicine Department for Behçet's disease manifested by bipolar aphtosis and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the lower extremities. Ophthalmological examination revealed a VA of 10/10 with a grade III papilledema. The CT scan showed a filling defect of the lateral sinus and superior longitudinal sinus with a "delta" sign in favour of dural venous sinus thrombosis leading to for the diagnosis of cerebral angio-Behçet. MRI confirmed the diagnosis by demonstrating extensive cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) of the superior longitudinal sinus, sinus rectus, lateral sinus, left sigmoid sinus, and left internal jugular vein. The treatment was based on the corticosteroid (methylprénisolone) with anticoagulant (Low molecular weight heparin and antivitamine K) and colchicine. The outcome was favorable with an easing of the headache and diplopia.
