Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) has been only recently described as a single nosological entity.It is defined as sudden thunderclap headache with reversible multifocal narrowing of cerebral arteries lasting 1–3 months with or without focal neurological symptoms.The reversibility can only be confirmed with the evolution, and at presentation, the diagnosis is often presumed. RCVS may be associated with major complications such as subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) (20–25%) and ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke (30%).Diagnosis and management of RCVS may be challenging. We report here a case of RCVS-related ICH leading to refractory intracranial hypertension.
