Abstract

Head trauma may provoke subarachnoid haemorrhage. The question sometimes arises whether in patients with trauma and subarachnoid haemorrhage the latter is of traumatic or aneurysmal origin. We present a 49-year-old patient who fell from a truck, struck his head and was unconscious immediately. On the brain computed tomography (CT) scan subarachnoid haemorrhage was present, initially diagnosed as of traumatic origin. Four-vessel angiography revealed rupture of a left ophthalmic artery aneurysm. We review the literature and give recommendations for angiography in patients with trauma and subarachnoid haemorrhage.
