|Thromboembolic complications, such as deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, are well described in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, but cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a rare but potentially devastating complication. The authors describe the case of a 36-year-old Japanese man presenting with CVT associated with ulcerative colitis (UC) that was successfully treated with a combination of continuous anticoagulant and pulse steroid therapy. Our observations suggest that aggressive therapy for inducing acute UC remission is vitally important for CVT associated with UC.
