A 57-year-old female presented with redness in both eyes and headache for 1-month duration. The clinical examination showed bilateral episcleral vessels congestion and central retinal vein occlusion. Optical coherence tomography scans were normal in both eyes. Radiological examination revealed bilateral superior ophthalmic vein thrombosis and venous sinus thrombosis involving the left terminal sigmoid sinus. The serum homocysteine level was elevated. The patient was treated with anticoagulants and vitamin B12 supplements. Three months following the initial presentation, there was a reduction in the episcleral vessel congestion and retinal hemorrhages. The magnetic resonance venography at the end of 3 months showed a partially recanalized left jugular bulb with chronic thrombosis of the left terminal sigmoid sinus.
