    Small Retinal Hemorrhages as the Only Sign of an Intracranial Aneurysm. 

    Am J Ophthalmol 125:401-403, 1998.

             

    This is a case report of a patient with subarachnoid haemorrhage whose only presenting signs were 2 small retinal haemorrhages.

         

    Upto 40% of patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage are first seen as fundal haemorrhages – believed to be caused by a sudden rise in intracranial pressure transmitted into the distal optic nerve sheath. This pressure causes intraocular haemorrhage by compressing the central retinal vein.
