Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome identification of prognostic factors. (a) The right internal carotid artery injection showing varying calibre of the M1 segment of the right middle cerebral artery (between arrows) with preserved distal flow and a standing wave within the vertical segment of the right internal carotid artery (between arrowheads). This medication has been shown to help ease the "thunder clap" headaches, but does not decrease the risk of stroke.For patients who have experienced a stroke, the Stroke Program at Cedars-Sinai provides a multidisciplinary treatment approach through treatment plans tailored to each patient. The differential diagnosis of RCVS includes conditions associated with thunderclap headache and conditions that cause irreversible or progressive cerebral artery narrowing, such as intracranial atherosclerosis and cerebral vasculitis. Generally, it has a benign course. The evolving pathology may lead to discrepancies in serial imaging.Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by acute ‘thunderclap’ (sudden and severe) headache with imaging evidence of segmental cerebral arterial vasoconstriction and dilatation that completely resolves over a period of months. Forget P, Goffette P, van de Wyngaert F, Raftopoulos C, Hantson P.J Headache Pain. (a) Vascular image showing no significant abnormality of the anterior circulation on magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) other than turbulent flow within the M1 segment of the right middle cerebral artery (arrow). It is believed to have a similar pathophysiological mechanism to the posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES), and both can occur in similar clinical contexts and are frequently associated. Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndromes: analysis of 139 cases. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation.
Transthoracic echocardiograms showed transient wall-motion abnormalities; however, coronary angiograms revealed no coronary artery disease.

Repeat brain MRI and MRA after 3 months showed maturation of the previous infarcts; MRA from the aortic arch to the circle of Willis showed a diffusely smaller right vertebral artery only; the previously noted abnormalities on all vascular imaging modalities had reversed. Five weeks after initial presentation, repeat intracranial and cervical MRA showed resolution of the internal carotid arteries changes previously observed on catheter angiography. Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is a group of disorders characterized by severe headaches and a narrowing of the blood vessels in the brain. Nimodipine may be used with careful monitoring of blood pressure as in some instances its use has been associated with cerebral ischaemic symptoms. The patient was admitted to the hospital 6 h after onset. Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS ) is a clinical‐radiological syndrome characterised by severe thunderclap headaches with or without other neurological symptoms and multifocal constriction of cerebral arteries that usually resolves spontaneously within 3 months. Here we report a paediatric case of RCVS to highlight this as a potential differential diagnosis for both acute childhood headache and stroke.
