CVST is a rather uncommon complication. A 19-year-old female developed an acute aseptic thrombosis of the parasagittal, transverse, and sigmoid sinuses. Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) due to thrombosis of the sinus with common symptoms and papilledema of both the eyes, this resulted in transitory bilateral abducents nerve palsy, as a result, horizontal diplopia in both the eyes, were among the case’s highlights. CVT has been linked to seizures. The cranial nerve function returned three to four weeks after it was first observed. The nearly complete recanalization of the cerebral venous sinus thrombosis and a favourable prognosis were aided by prompt and appropriate anticoagulant medication.
