Previous studies have reported the possible contribution of a primitive variant of the basal vein of Rosenthal (BVR) in the cause of idiopathic subarachnoid hemorrhage (ISAH). The purpose of this study was to assess the drainage patterns of the BVR among ISAH patients. The venous phase at cerebral angiography was retrospectively analyzed in 19 patients with ISAH and then compared with patients with unruptured aneurysms as controls. A relationship was found between ISAH and the presence of a primitive variant. However, the venous configuration effect on bleeding is still unknown.
