It has been reported that headache in 50-60% of subarachnoid hemorrhage cases has an abrupt onset and is severe with the cause in the 75-80% of events being intracranial aneurysm rupture. This condition, which is also known as sentinel headache and particularly observed days before the rupture of an aneurysm, is of great importance to clinicians. Subarachnoid hemorrhage is rarely seen in pregnancy; on the other hand, it has a high mortality rate for both mother and fetus. This paper presents the case studies of two pregnant women who were admitted to the hospital with a sentinel headache, abrupt-onset and variable headache complaints, they were consequently diagnosed with subarachnoid hemorrhage.
