A ruptured cerebral aneurysm in a term parturient requires a consideration of several factors important to the survival of both the mother and infant. A 39-week pregnant patient with a subarachnoid hemorrhage, secondary to a ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm, presented emergently for clipping of a cerebral aneurysm under general anesthesia. Anesthetic goals for this patient included maintenance of maternal well-being, uteroplacental perfusion, and fetal well-being. Fetal monitoring consisted of fetal heart rate by external Doppler and uterine activity by external tocodynamometer. The aneurysm was well clipped, and the patient was in a good neurological grade after surgery. A healthy baby was delivered 7 days postoperatively via the vaginal route under epidural analgesia. The anesthetic management of the case is described and discussed.
