Sturge-Weber Disease With Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
A healthy adult with a nevus flammeus presented with a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Cerebral arteriography demonstrated vascular anomalies typical of encephalofacial angiomatosis (Sturge-Weber disease). A review of the literature failed to disclose a welldocumented case of subarachnoid hemorrhage in this condition.
