Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is an infrequent condition affecting pregnant females, resulting from clot formation in one of the many outflow tracts of the brain. It is a rare but potentially fatal complication of pregnancy and postpartum period. The incidence of venous thromboembolism during pregnancy and puerperium has been estimated to be 5.5 -6 times higher than general female population of child bearing age. In this study we observe the clinical profile of postpartum cerebral venous thrombosis and its management.
