Thrombosis of the cerebral dural sinuses has been well described in the literature and rarely the dural sinus obstruction can result in unremitting papilledema (benign intracranial hypertension or pseudotumor cerebri) causing blindness. We report a case of a 55-year-old man, who was diagnosed to have superior sagittal sinus thrombosis and developed visual deterioration. The patient did not respond to conservative treatment and a thecoperitoneal shunt was performed. Patient is doing well at one-year follow-up with good outcome.
