Curious case of corpus callosal hematoma in a normotensive p
The present case has been published in the International Journal of Reproduction, Contraception, Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Postpartum cerebral angiopathy (PCA) is a rare cause of stroke in the puerperium. It usually presents with episodes of headache, seizures and neurological deficits in early post-partum period in normotensive females. CT, MRI and catheter angiography may demonstrate segmental vasoconstriction that often resolves spontaneously.

PPA is generally regarded as a benign, non-relapsing and reversible disease process. The authors present a clinico-radiological correlative case of isolated corpus callosal hematoma in a post-partum normotensive female with evidence of intracranial vascular spasm and luminal irregularity on CT and catheter angiography.

Follow up MR angiography revealed resolution of the vasospasm and luminal irregularity. Patient was managed conservatively and showed resolution of the symptoms in follow up visit on 8th week.
