Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is a rare but serious and treatable cause of neurologic symptoms. Due to the variable clinical presentation, CVST was often misdiagnosed. According to published case reports, common clinical manifestations of CVST include headache, focal neurological deficit, epilepsy, papilledema, etc. It is rare, nevertheless, to mention cases of rapidly progressive dementia (RPD).
