Thunderclap headache in SAH

Advances in the management of SAH have resulted in a relative reduction in mortality rate which depends upon early diagnosis and ability to differentiate subarchnoid haemorrhage from cluster headache, migraine, hypertensive headaches, stroke and transient ischemic attacks. However, more than one third of survivors have major neurologic deficits. Cognitive deficits are present, even in many patients considered to have a good outcome. Some of the factors which affect the outcome include age and overall health of the patient, location of the bleed, occurrence of rebleed and degree of vasospasm.
