The authors describe a rare case of subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA) associated with tuberous sclerosis complex that presented with intratumoral bleeding with extension to the ventricles. The literature regarding intracranial hemorrhage of SEGA is reviewed and only five cases have been reported in the literature. We have not identified a histological feature associated with bleeding.
