Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is an nderdiagnosed condition which usually presents as severe headache with or without neurological deficit. We report the case of a 55-year-old woman who  presented with headache and multifocal intracerebral haemorrhage. We review the literature regarding the presentation, pathophysiology and management of RCVS and discuss how to differentiate it from cerebral vasculitis.
