The aim is to highlight isolated cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVT) may be a complication of long-standing uncorrected tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). We are reporting a 62-year-old female patient came in Neurology department in Government Medical College, Kota in November 2015. She was presented with a history of a headache and vomiting for 2 days followed by status epilepticus. She had TOF since childhood and developed secondary polycythemia. She had been underwent three times phlebotomy and also taking anticoagulation for 5 years. She had minimal cerebral arterial thrombotic evidence on radiological imaging, and clinical manifestations were less than expected in hyperviscosity conditions. On detailed investigations, we found that she had CVT secondary to secondary polycythemia. Now, she is being treated as severe risk subjects for CVT. We conclude that isolated CVT can be rare kind of presentation in TOF.
