Epidural hematomas of the posterior fossa in children.

Abstract

The authors report 3 cases of epidural hematoma of the posterior fossa in children. The clinical signs and symptoms are discussed. Onset of symptoms is not necessarily acute. The radiological findings are discussed. Epidural hematomas of the posterior fossa in children have a tendency to liquefy earlier than supratentorial hematomas. We emphasize the value of computed tomography for the diagnosis of epidural hematoma of the posterior fossa. One should keep in mind the possibility of the presence of an epidural hematoma of the posterior fossa in the treatment of head injury in children, even in the case of a minor head injury.
