Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST) is an uncommon cerebrovascular disease caused by cerebral venous sinus blockage, leading to increased intracranial pressure, venous infarction, or bleeding. Among the patients, convexal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (cSAH) caused by CVST is relatively rare, accounting for only 0.5% to 0.8%  of all CVST patients. Convexal SAH is a subtype of non-aneurysmal SAH, characterized by the limitation of bleeding in one or several convex cortical sulci. The pathogenesis of CVST is challenging to find but valuable for subsequent treatment. We report a patient with CVST caused by primary Sjögren Syndrome (pSS) and secondary "Noncriteria" antiphospholipid syndrome, whose first manifestation was cSAH. After diagnosis, the patient was given long-term anticoagulation to treat CVST and "Non-criteria" antiphospholipid syndrome. The case aims to discuss the diagnosis, pathogenesis, personalized treatment plan, and the risk of recurrence.
