Abstract: Deep cerebral venous thrombosis manifesting as corpus callosal haemorrhage is a rare entity. Such involvement is best explained anatomically. We describe a case of a 56-year-old female presenting with headache, significant impairment of sensorium and nonambulatory paraparesis. The patient succumbed immediately after being put on mechanical ventilation. Brain dissection showed significant callosal haemorrhage with extensive disruption. There were signs of venous involvement affecting rostrum and genu with defacement of margins. The right hemisphere unlike the left was defaced entirely with no signs of vessels or the anterior part of corpus callosum. Anatomical observation revealed signs of deep cerebral vein thrombosis with a larger hemorrhagic zone in the right hemisphere with visible vessels and involved venous channels on the contralateral side. The case was ascertained to be a case of corpus callosal haemorrhage attributing to deep cerebral venous thrombosis. A rare event such as this should always be followed up with imaging to improve our document for further understanding.
