An extensive lateral sinus thrombosis secondary to silent otitis media, in a patient with a nephrotic syndrome, is presented. The thrombotic process progressed asymptomatically until the occlusion of the superior vena cava. Removal of the intractable pathology within the mastoid and administration of appropriate antibiotic therapy, prevented the further propagation of the life-threatening condition.
