Acute subdural hematoma of the posterior fosa (ASDH-PF) is a clinical rarity with a poor prognosis in teenagers or adults (mortality rate: 71%). We report the third case operated upon with success. The relevant literature is analysed and the characteristics of ASDH-PF are discussed, particularly in connection with the patient's age.
