We report the case of a 41-year-old, 7-weeks-pregnant patient, presenting with headache and generalized seizure due to cerebral venous thrombosis complicated by jugular thrombosis and thrombus dislocation into right cardiac cavities. The patient was treated with intravenous heparin, and underwent embolectomy in extracorporeal circulation. This case illustrates the variability of cerebral venous thrombosis progression and a potentially life-threatening condition even during anticoagulant therapy.
