More than 2,400 years ago, Hippocrates in “Aphorisms” (VI, 51) recognized the natural history of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) followed by subsequent delayed neurological deterioration "When persons in good health are suddenly seized with pains in the head, and straightway are laid down speechless, and breathe with stertor, they die in seven days, unless fever come on". SAH, nowadays, remains a severe emergency because of the sudden extravasation of blood into the subarachnoid space, still causing, even with modern aggressive medical and surgical therapies, significant morbidity and mortality.

Abstract

More than 2,400 years ago, Hippocrates in “Aphorisms” (VI, 51) recognized the natural history of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) followed by subsequent delayed neurological deterioration "When persons in good health are suddenly seized with pains in the head, and straightway are laid down speechless, and breathe with stertor, they die in seven days, unless fever come on". SAH, nowadays, remains a severe emergency because of the sudden extravasation of blood into the subarachnoid space, still causing, even with modern aggressive medical and surgical therapies, significant morbidity and mortality.
