Sneddon Syndrome (SS) is a rare, progressive small and medium-vessel vasculopathy characterized by livedo racemosa and ischaemic cerebrovascular events. An 18-year-old female of East Indian descent presented with recurrent Cerebral Venous Sinus Thromboses and a livedo reticularis rash. She was treated for a CNS vasculitis/Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Syndrome when she presented with refractory status epilepticus and raised intracranial pressure. Her neurological state gradually improved (coma ->vegetative state ->minimally conscious ->conscious). Skin biopsy was suggestive of an obstructive vasculopathy. There are few case reports describing SS. We aim to highlight the clinical course and treatment of this rare diagnostic entity.
