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.

Authors: Mo Y, Huang L, Chen L, Veronesi M, Shi Y, Chen S, Peng L, Zhou L, Pu Y, Wang J Abstract Cerebral vasospasm (CVS) is a severe complication that occurs following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) has been used to evaluate brain injury following SAH in humans. The present study was designed to assess a rabbit model of symptomatic CVS (SCVS) and the utility of MRA in evaluating SCVS in rabbits. Japanese white rabbits (n=24) were randomly divided into 2 equal groups: A sham group and a SAH group. Neurological scores were evaluated for 7 days following SAH. Basilar ar...

There is an ongoing search for conditions that induce spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The seasonal pattern of SAH is shown in a large meta-analysis of the literature, but its explanation remains undecided. There is a clear need for sound meteorologic data to further elucidate the seasonal influence on SAH. Because of the stable and densely monitored atmospheric situation in the north of the Netherlands, we reviewed our unique cohort on the seasonal incidence of SAH and the association between SAH and local atmospheric changes.

ConclusionHealth‐promoting behaviour and psychological stress are promising modifiable factors for reducing risk of aneurysmal rupture. Relevance to clinical practiceOur findings may stimulate greater understanding of mechanisms underlying aneurysmal rupture and suggest practical strategies for nurses to employ in optimising conservative management of rupture risk by teaching patients how to modify their risk. Both health‐promoting behaviour and perceived stress should be addressed when designing preventive nursing interventions for patients with unruptured intracranial aneurysm.

Abstract CONTEXT: - Lumbar puncture (LP) is still an important modality in the diagnosis of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Rapid and correct fluid analysis can provide patients with a better prognosis by appropriate intervention. OBJECTIVE: - To determine the value of cerebrospinal fluid lactate dehydrogenase level in differentiation between SAH and traumatic LP. DESIGN: - This was a cross-sectional observational study. Patients with a diagnostic suspicion of SAH, who were admitted to the emergency department, were enrolled in our study based on the inclusion criteria. All patients underwent head compute...

Oncotic aneurysm is a rare condition with a high mortality rate. Since no consensus has been reached regarding therapeutic strategy for ruptured oncotic aneurysm, treatment remains challenging.
