BACKGROUND: Hemorrhagic transformation (HT) is a feared complication of reperfusion therapy for treatment of acute ischemic stroke. Generally, HT occurs within 24-36 hours after thrombolysis.
SUMMARY OF CASE: We present a case of a fatal symptomatic HT of an infarction that occurred 7 days after acute ischemic stroke which was preceded by a remarkable recovery following a combination of acute revascularization therapies.
CONCLUSION: Fatal symptomatic HT is a rare potential complication that can occur after several days of treatment of acute ischemic stroke.
