Abstract

We present a patient with a glioblastoma multiforme treated with bevacizumab who suffered a traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Trascranial doppler revealed no evidence of vasoconstriction, which has been previously described in a bevacizumab-treated patient. Bevacizumab was resumed five weeks after the SAH without recurrence of bleeding or vasoconstriction. To our knowledge this is the first report of resumption of bevacizumab after SAH.
