Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) associated with cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is rarely reported. In our case, the initial CT shows with suspected lesions that SAH. After the initial diagnosis of SVT with history and neurological examination findings MRV taken and consistend with thrombus signal change. Dural sinus thrombosis with secondary venous hypertension may lead to SAH into the subarachnoid space due to the rupture of fragile, thin-walled cortical veins. Patients with non-traumatic, non-aneurysmal and non-perimesencephalic subaracnoid hemorrhage tend to have clots circumscribed along the cortical convexity, a condition referred as acute cortical SAH. CVT is a potential cause of cortical SAH. This case; SAH may be the first sign of SVT and especially SVT must do in etiologic research without the involvement of the basal sisterna in cases of SAH.
