Double positive crescentic glomerulonephritis is relatively rare in young population and has variable outcomes. Although increased incidence of deep venous thrombosis in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis has been reported, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVT) is very rare. We present a young male who presented with CVT followed by rapidly progressive crescentic glomerulonephritis and with appropriate therapeutic modalities he had complete renal and partial neurological recovery.
