Electrocardiographic (ECG) alterations in the course of sub-arachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) have frequently been reported. The most frequent anomalies reported were lengthening of the QT interval, very negative or positive deep T waves, elevation or depression of the ST segment and the presence of U waves. We report 70 cases of SAH secondary to rupture of intracranial aneurysm (part of a larger group of 150) with ECG changes. We review the literature with particular regard to discussion of the possible pathogenesis of ECG changes and to the way they may affect the general clinical course.
