We report a case of subarachnoid hemorrhage in a 38-year-old patient with sickle cell anemia. This case highlights the limitations of noncontrast computed tomography in the diagnosis of subarachnoid hemorrhage in patients with sickle cell disease as well as the special needs of this patient population in addressing the treatment of stroke.
