Two children with hydrocephalus due to a spontaneous intracerebellar hematoma secondary to blood dyscrasia were treated successfully with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. They represent the first documented cases of spontaneous intracerebellar hemorrhage in children treated successfully without posterior fossa operation. The size of the hematoma, the severity of the hydrocephalus, and the patient's neurological and physical condition are important factors in choosing the mode of treatment.
