Abstract

Traumatic subdural hematomas (SDHs) in the posterior fossa in conjunction with cervical spinal hematomas are rare entities. In this case, we present a 22-year old man who presented to our institution with ligamentous injury at the cervicomedullary junction, associated with posterior fossa SDH not discovered initially, who on serial computed tomography scans was found to have symptomatic obstructive hydrocephalus and was successfully treated with SDH evacuation and stabilization of the cervicomedullary junction with instrumentation.
