Spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage occurs less frequently in children than in adults. Overall incidence is estimated at less than 5%. Lesions implicated in children are similar to those in adults but have unique aspects. Lesions seen include arteriovenous malformations and aneurysms, although other causes exist. Examination of four different causes of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage in children through case studies highlights similarities and differences in presentation, diagnosis, treatment, nursing problems, and outcome.
