BACKGROUND: The location of parenchymal hemorrhage often indicates the site of the aneurysm in subarachnoid hemorrhage. CASE REPORT: We present the first case of a thalamus hematoma associated with a small ruptured (P1) posterior cerebral artery aneurysm with rapid washout of subarachnoid blood mimicking a ganglionic hemorrhage. CONCLUSION: Thalamus hematoma with subarachnoid hemorrhage points at a ruptured proximal posterior circulation aneurysm.
