Abstract
We report superior sagittal sinus thrombosis as a central nervous system presentation of Behcet’s disease in a patient with peripheral vascular and enteric involvement. The main symptoms were headache and horizontal diplopia due to intracranial hypertension. T1-weighted MRI with gadolinium enhancement revealed a similar pattern of the “empty delta sign” that is usually seen on brain CT. A magnetic resonance venogram revealed filling defects resulting from the thrombosis. These features are helpful for the noninvasive diagnosis of sagittal sinus thrombosis. Key Words: Neuro-Behcet’s disease, Superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, Magnetic resonance venogram
