Abstract : Internal jugular vein (IJV) thrombosis is a rare entity. It is usually secondary to various etiologies such as ovarian hyperstimulation, deep vein thrombosis of upper limbs, venous catheter, malignancy, trauma, infection, and neck surgery and hypercoagulable status. We report an unusual case of internal jugular vein thrombosis with cerebral sinus thrombosis, postpartum in a 22-year-old female patient who presented with a painful swelling on the left side of her neck. Diagnosis was established by color Doppler ultrasonography and magnetic resonance venography. Thorough evaluation of the patient revealed no etiological factor leading to thrombosis. Patient was treated with low-molecular-weight heparin.
