Subarachnoidal hemorrhage due to rupture of a cerebral aneurysm is rare in pregnancy. However it may result in significant maternal and fetal mortality as well as neurological complications. Differential diagnosis includes eclampsia and hyperemesis gravidarum. We present a case of a patient here at her 33rd week of gestation with the rupture of a 7-8 mm large saccular aneurysm of the ophthalmic artery at the bifurcation. Clipping of the aneurysm was performed, followed by a cesarean section 22 days after the neurosurgical procedure. The result of this close collaboration among obstetricians, neurologists, neurosurgeons and the anaesthesiologist was a healthy newborn and mother without neurological complications.
