The association of alcoholism with stroke is known. However, acute cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) presenting as a complication of binge drinking is rare. Two such rare cases are presented here. Since, there is an overlap of symptoms between veisalgia and CVST, the diagnosis of CVST may be missed or delayed in alcoholic patients. It is important to keep a rare possibility of acute CVST in mind while dealing with patients who present with neurological symptoms following binge drinking. Imaging plays a vital role in making an early and specific diagnosis, thus preventing complications.
