Background: Food-born botulism is caused by ingestion of contaminated food with clostridium botulinum neurotoxin.
Case: In food-born botulism, due to acetylcholine release blockade, neuromuscular signs and symptoms are common, but in this case report we present a food-born botulism with papiledema and venous sinus thrombosis.
Conclusion: Papiledema and fever could not rule out the diagnosis of botulism.
Keywords: Botulism, sinus thrombosis
