Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare cause of focal neurological damage in patients with SLE. We describe a patient with SLE who presented with a focal neurological deficit and subsequently developed increased intracranial pressure. A superior sagittal sinus thrombosis was diagnosed by MRI. The association between SLE and superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is discussed. Early diagnosis is essential because treatment leads to a positive clinical outcome.
