Abstract

Background: Developmental Venous Anomalies (DVAs) are the most common brain vascular abnormality. They are usually benign, incidental findings on brain images and asymptomatic. Case: We report a case of a 48-year-old man with an acute headache and transient visual symptoms due to an occipital sulcus Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH). Extensive diagnostic workup revealed an occipital DVA with an idiopathic mechanism of bleeding. Conclusion: To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported case of an occipital sulcus SAH due to a DVA with an idiopathic mechanism of bleeding. The treatment of an intracranial hemorrhage due to a DVA will depend on the presenting symptoms and the pathophysiology of bleeding.
