Thrombosis of cerebral veins and sinuses (CVST) is a rare condition seldom affecting young adults and children. The development of cerebral sinus thrombosis as a complication of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia/thrombosis syndrome (HIT/HITT) is even rarer. We describe a case of a 17-year old female with multiple fractures, who developed CVST secondary to HIT, while being under thromboprophylaxis with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH).
