Subdural interhemispheric hematomas (ISH), though not really rare, are quite an uncommon complication of head traumas. This condition is more frequent in childhood, where it is generally considered as a part of a more complex syndrome, called 'Shaken Children Syndrome', usually pointing out child abuse. Although a head injury is very often considered the cause (in about 80-90% of the cases), possible predisposing factors such as coagulopathies, alcohol abuse or anticoagulant therapy can also be considered. Furthermore, as the rupture of an intracranial aneurysm has also occasionally pinpointed as a possible cause, this event should be kept in mind in order to be able to address exactly both the diagnostic and therapeutical procedures. A new conservatively managed case is thereby described. A review of the literature with particular attention drawn to the diagnosis and the different therapeutical possibilities is also elaborated.
