Case Report


Ulcerative Colitis is an autoimmune inflammatory bowel disease causing abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea and malnutrition and is associated with intestinal and extra intestinal complications. The clinical course has remissions and flare ups. Thromboembolism is a known risk associated with ulcerative colitis. Here we present a case of a young man who presented with a flare up of ulcerative colitis and developed neurological deficits that were diagnosed as due to cerebral venous thrombosis. Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare complication of ulcerative colitis and can be missed without proper work up and consideration of diagnosis.
