Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by the triad of severe "thunderclap" headaches, neurological symptoms and transient segmental cerebral arterial vasoconstriction. We report a patient with RCVS following carotid endarterectomy and review the literature on RCVS following carotid revascularisation.
