We report herein a case of a child with nephrotic syndrome (NS) who presented with acute convergent strabismus, double vision, and papilledema one week after a history of badly treated sinusitis. The imaging study revealed an extensive thrombosis of the intracranial sinuses that was treated with intravenous heparin and oral corticosteroids. Four months later, the case evolved with spontaneous resolution of ocular deviation and diplopia.
