Though cerebrovascular accident in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy is a rare entity, it causes high morbidity and mortality because of unpredictable onset and late diagnosis. Incidence of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) accompanying nonfatal eclampsia is unknown, but the lesion is found in 10–60% of all mortalities that occur due to eclampsia. We report an unusual case of a 25-year-old primigravida who developed sudden eclampsia and intracranial hemorrhage leading to a mass effect on the right ventricle and a midline shift. She was managed by a multidisciplinary approach involving an emergency lower section cesarean section by an obstetrician, a craniotomy by a neurosurgeon, and intensive care by an anesthesiologist.
