The article discusses the result of the study regarding Terson's syndrome in subarachnoid hemorrhage. A man, who was rushed to the emergency department after becoming unconscious, was diagnosed with the presence of Terson's syndrome. The CT scan of his brain revealed subarachnoid hemorrhage with global brain edema. Based on the examination of the radiological findings, there is a noted prominent intraocular hemorrhage illustrated on the CT scan.
