There are different causes of hydrocephalus. Lack of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) absorption due to cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is one of the rare causes of hydrocephalus. We present a 47-year-old gentleman who had complaint of headache for 2 months. He was diagnosed as communicating hydrocephalus due to right transverse sinus and anterior part of superior sagittal sinus thrombosis. The patient was treated by CSF diversion procedure. There are only few cases have been published on hydrocephalus due to the same etiology.
