The clinical course of a patient with subarachnoid hemorrhage and increased systemic fibrinolysis is presented. Mechanisms to explain the fibrinolytic activity in this particular case are discussed in detail. Evidence is presented to show that systemic fibrinolysis was increased during the procedure of angiography. The complications of both the subarachnoid hemorrhage and angiography in this patient suggest that patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage should be evaluated for increased systemic fibrinolytic activity as part of a routine hemostatic workup.
