Abstract

Postpartum cerebral angiopathy is a recognized but infrequent complication of ergot alkaloid derivatives. We describe a patient who experienced reversible cerebral vasoconstriction with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) after ingesting lisuride in the postpartum period. Lisuride is likely to cause postpartum cerebral angiopathy, and ICH must now be considered a possible cerebrovascular complication of postpartum cerebral angiopathy. Our observation calls for further study to verify these findings.
