Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is an increasingly recognized cause of acute headache. Postpartum reversible vasoconstriction syndrome is a recognized subset of RCVS. Differentiating RCVS from primary angiitis of the central nervous system can be dificult but has important therapeutic implications. This case highlights the clinical and imaging features of RCVS and stresses the importance of diagnosing this rare entity.
