A 55-year-old-woman suddenly woke up with the worst headache she ever experienced. The clinical picture deteriorated fast and by the time she was admitted to the emergency department, she developed anisocoria and was in a coma (Glasgow Coma Scale, 3/15). A non enhanced computed tomography of the brain was performed and revealed a subarachnoid hemorrhage (Fig. A) caused by a ruptured aneurysm of the anterior communicating artery (Fig. B, black arrow). The aneurysm was successfully treated by endovascular occlusion with coils.
