Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), often occurring from rupture of an intracranial aneurysm, typically presents with a sudden severe headache and neck stiffness, and can be complicated by fatal rebleeding, arterial vasospasm producing ischemia, seizures, metabolic derangements, and venous thrombosis. The most common presenting complaint in SAH is the sudden onset of a painful headache followed by pain radiating into the occipital or cervical region. Meningismus develops as blood flows into the spinal subarachnoid space.

Neurocysticercosis is caused by CNS infection with Taenia solium larva. In neurocysticercosis, humans are the intermediate host; cysts develop in the brain parenchyma, meninges, or ventricular spaces. In general, cysticerci do not produce clinical symptomatology until the cyst begins to die. The inflammatory reaction triggered by cyst degeneration produces clinical symptoms such as seizures, headaches, altered mental status, and focal neurologic signs like hemiparesis, visual loss, and paraparesis.

Diabetic amyotrophy is a motor neuropathy affecting the lumbosacral plexus, causing unilateral pain of the thigh and buttock followed by weakness and atrophy of those muscles. It typically occurs in older patients with type 2 diabetes and is believed to be due to an immune-mediated microvasculitis causing ischemic injury.
