  • Concurrent presentation of perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage and ischemic stroke. Journal of stroke and cerebrovascular diseases : the official journal of National Stroke Association Lansberg, M. G. 2008; 17 (4): 248-250


    Perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a relatively benign form of SAH. The etiology of this condition is unknown but venous leakage has been believed to be the most likely cause. This report describes a patient with perimesencephalic SAH who presented with a concurrent acute pontine infarct demonstrated on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging. These findings suggest that in some instances perimesencephalic SAH is caused by rupture of a perforating artery.
