Özet

IMPORTANCE Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is a clinical-angiographic syndrome characterized by recurrent thunderclap headaches and reversible segmental multifocal cerebral artery narrowing. More than 30% of patients with RCVS develop subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Patients with RCVS with SAH (RCVS-SAH) are often misdiagnosed as having potentially ominous conditions such as aneurysmal SAH (aSAH) or cryptogenic "angiogram-negative" SAH (cSAH) owing to overlapping clinical and imaging features.
