We present a case of brain death in a vaccinated, immunocompromised patient who presented with COVID-19 pneumonia. Imaging was characterized by diffuse cerebral edema, pseudo-subarachnoid hemorrhage, and no antegrade flow above the terminal internal carotid arteries. To our knowledge, this is the first case report with such findings in a vaccinated patient.
