Great Cerebral Vein

The great cerebral vein is a short vascular trunk formed by the confluence of four veins, namely, the two internal cerebral veins and the two basal veins. It curves around the splenium of the corpus callosum and empties into the straight sinus. Veins from the surface of the cerebellum and from the occipital lobe may drain into it.
