Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis [CVST] is often an infrequent cause of neurological dysfunction resulting in admissions in Intensive care units [ICU]. Because of its myriad presentation it may be under diagnosed. Unfractionated Heparin [UFH] has been advocated in treatment but needs frequent monitoring. We studied the clinical profile of patients of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, use of low molecular weight heparin [LMWH] with emphasis on safety in 64 patients of CVST.
