We study BPS vortices in a CPT-odd and Lorentz-violating Maxwell–Chern–Simons–Higgs (MCSH) electrodynamics attained from the dimensional reduction of the Carroll–Field–Jackiw–Higgs model. The Lorentz-violating parameter induces a pronounced behavior at origin (for the magnetic/electric fields and energy density) which is absent in the MCSH vortices. For some combination of the Lorentz-violating coefficients there always exists a sufficiently large winding number such that for all the magnetic field flips sign, yielding two well-defined regions with opposite magnetic flux. However, the total magnetic flux remains quantized and proportional to the winding number.
