The hemichorea is the most common movement disorder after stroke. This is a very rare complication of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH) of which only six cases have been reported to date before ours. We report the case of a 65-year-old woman who was admitted for choreoathetosis with a language disorder that had been evolving for three days ago. The neurological examination noted in addition a meningeal syndrome. Brain CT scan found intraventricular hemorrhage with a small hematoma of the corpus callosum. An aneurysm of the anterior communicating artery was visualized on the angiography. The abnormal movements regressed correctly with neuroleptic (Tiapride).
