Abstract: There are only few cases of patient developing cerebral venous thrombosis after androgen therapy. We represent here a 22 yr young man who developed cortical venous thrombosis after using androgens to increase muscle mass. He was hospitalised for headache and generalised tonic clonic seizures. He recovered well with low molecular weight heparin and antiepileptic medications. Brain MRI and MRV showed superior sagital and transverse sinus thrombosis and extensive investigations did not reveal any known cause. There are many causes of venous sinus thrombosis but use of anabolic steroids occurs to be a rare cause.
