Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is the usual mode of manifestation of ruptured cerebral aneurysms. Seizures are considered to be uncommon as a symptom of SAH and the incidence of seizures accompanying SAH is largely unknown. We have made a retrospective analysis of patients with SAH due to cerebral aneurysm with the aim of comparing clinical and neuroradiological findings in the groups with and without seizures.
