AbstractCerebral sinovenous thrombosis (CSVT) is an uncommon but serious condition in neonates. Because of varying manifestations, the diagnosis and management of CSVT in neonates is difficult. A 5-day male neonate was diagnosed with CSVT after the initiation of suspicious movements. The contractions were controlled and after performing diagnostic tests, the diagnosis of CSVT was made.
