Intracranial venous congestion is a rare condition in hemodialysis patients with central venous occlusion. We report a patient with cerebral venous infarction resulting from high reflex flow into the cranium induced by an arteriovenous hemodialysis shunt in the arm and occlusion of the brachiocephalic vein. This case illustrates that abnormal extracranial venous circulation should be considered when cerebral venous congestion is assumed to produce neurologic symptoms in patients with an arteriovenous shunt.
