Myeloproliferative disorders (MPD) are associated with vascular thrombosis. Common sites for thrombosis are large arteries; however, less commonly, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) has also been reported. It is rare to have CVST as an initial presentation of MPD. We discuss a male patient in whose presentation due to CVST led to the diagnosis of essential thrombocythemia (ET). Furthermore, we performed a literature review to evaluate the association of CVST with ET.
