As initial therapy for cerebral sinus thrombosis, heparin injection and subsequent oral anticoagulant, namely warfarin, has been recommended. We treated a patient with cerebral sinus thrombosis with edoxaban alone as an outpatient. This is the first report of cerebral sinus thrombosis being treated with edoxaban alone. For patients with mild cerebral venous or sinus thrombosis without severe neurological symptoms, treatment with a DOAC at an outpatient clinic is more effective in ensuring the patient’s QOL and reducing medical costs.
