Patients with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) have variable presentations, especially early in the disease; 90% of them may present with migraine-like headache only that make them vulnerable to being misdiagnosed. The main objective of this review study is to analyse the awareness of cavernous sinus thrombosis (CST). This review analysis was conducted in Allama Iqbal Memorial Teaching Hospital, Sialkot during 2019. The data was collected from Google scholar, PubMed and Web of science. All the data were gathered for the clinical presentation of CST. All the data were collected and analysed. Cavernous sinus thrombosis has a distinctive clinical picture that includes, in classic acute cases, chemosis, proptosis, and painful ophthalmoplegia, initially unilateral but frequently becoming bilateral. It is concluded that early diagnosis of CST depends on the careful speculation of an experienced and oriented clinician.
