Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is cryptogenic in 15% of cases. Despite reports of proven recurrence, additional diagnostic studies are not often recommended when no abnormalities were identified on the initial study with digital subtraction angiography (DSA). In our retrospective review of outcomes after cryptogenic SAH, we identify diagnostic strategies that most often yielded the source of bleeding.
