AB: A case of parasagittal meningioma causing subarachnoidal haemorrhage (SAH) is reported. Computed tomography (CT) was found negative in the patient with acute severe headache and haemorrhage was observed on cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) showed an avascular space over the convexity and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed the tumour. The importance of MRI for the detection of underlying pathology in SAH with unknown aetiology is emphasised.
