INTRODUCTION Presenting symptoms of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) may overlap. Patients with RCVS often harbor unruptured aneurysms. We report a case of RCVS in a patient with an unruptured intracranial aneurysm. The development of diffuse vasoconstriction after aneursym clipping in the absence of any subarachnoid blood was initially confusing, until subtle vasoconstriction before clipping was seen retrospectively. RESULTS We… CONTINUE READING
