We describe an obstetric patient who presented for removal of a retained placenta. After insertion of the spinal anaesthetic, she developed a severe headache, and a subarachnoid haemorrhage was diagnosed. We discuss the differential diagnosis of the headache, the occurrence of intracranial haemorrhages after dural puncture and the future management of this patient.
