Abstract

Four cases of childhood posttraumatic posterior fossa epidural hematoma diagnosed by computed tomography (CT) are reported. All four patients presented with relatively minor symptoms after sustaining head trauma and returned to normal after evacuation of the hematoma. The pertinent literature concerning posterior fossa epidural hematoma in children is reviewed. The role of CT in the early detection of lesions when the associated clinical symptoms are mild is emphasized.
