Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by severe thunderclap headache with multifocal segmental vasoconstriction of the cerebral arteries. RCVS can be diagnosed if the cerebral angiogram shows segmental stenosis and spontaneously resolves within weeks to months. RCVS is reversible, but might cause brain lesions such as subarachnoid hemorrhage or cerebral infarction. We report a 45-year-old woman with severe sudden onset frontal headache who was identified with reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome.
