Nonseptic cortical venous thrombosis in an 18-year-old Negro primigravida was first manifested 3 weeks postpartum by severe headache and focal seizures beginning in the right arm, followed by weakness of right arm and right leg which progressed to flaccid paralysis of the arm and spastic paralysis of the leg. Bilateral carotid angiography indicated questionable obstruction of the superior sagittal sinus, and a parasagittal mass suggesting arteriovenous malformation or neoplasm. Exploratory left parietal craniotomy revealed a cortical venous thrombosis with extensive collateral vasculature. Thirty months later, right-sided function has progressively improved; there is no residual weakness
