We describe a young woman with typical IIH who underwent lumbar puncture and was treated with a short course of high-dose corticosteroids followed by acetazolamide. She subsequently developed CVST, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and stroke. Risk factors that may have resulted in CVST are discussed.

We report the case of a woman who present a migrant headache, resistant to the therapy. It was at first performed an axial CT scan of the brain that was negative. Afterwards the Patient did an MRI which proves the presence of a hyperintensity rhyme, localized in the left temporal region, in the subdural space, diagnosed like a subdural hemorrhage. Considering the type and increase of headache, neurologist suggest to perform a venography PC sequence that finally demonstrate the correct diagnosis of a filling defect of left spheno-parietal sinus.

Ischemic strokes can induce cardiac structural and functional damage. Essentially stroke-induced heart injury (SIHI) is part of a wider spectrum of brain injuries (eg, cerebral infarction, intracranial hemorrhage) leading to heart disease, known as neurogenic heart disease. Similarly, the concept of atrial fibrillation (AF) diagnosed after stroke (AFDAS) was established to reflect the complexity of this specific type of AF that is unknown until the time of stroke [1]. The detection of AF after ischemic stroke is usually regarded as the cause of the stroke (cardiogenic AFDAS).

Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) has been recommended for diagnosing diabetes mellitus (DM). We aimed to assess the prevalence of newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus (NDDM) in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) using HbA1c criteria and to investigate the long-term prognosis of patients with ICH with NDDM.
