Abstract

Traumatic posterior fossa hematomas are uncommon. Subdural hematomas in this location are probably the rarest. The natural history in acute cases is one of rapid deterioration and death from brain-stem compression. Rapid surgical intervention is indicated in acute cases. We report a case of a traumatic posterior fossa subdural hematoma in a 3-year-old child treated conservatively with a good outcome.
