Abstract

Clinical as well as neuroimaging studies of women with eclampsia or pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) have described a variety of neurologic manifestations, including intraparenchymal brain hemorrhage. Autopsy studies have described pia-arachnoid hemorrhage in women who died of eclampsia, but radiographic studies have found only intraparenchymal hemorrhage. The author describes clinical and radiographic features in three women with subarachnoid hemorrhage associated with PIH.
