The interhemispheric subdural hematomas (ISHs) are located along the whole interhemispheric scissure. The ISHs are a rare complication of head traumas. Possible predisposing factors such as coagulopathies, alcohol abuse or anticoagulant therapy are favouring factors. ISHs are rarely accompanied by changes in consciousness and it usually manifests itself with signs of "Falx Syndrome" (controlateral monoparesis of lower extremity or controlateral hemiparesis with lower limb weakness predominating). The treatment can consist of conservative observation or craniotomy and is dictated by the neurological evolution. In literature are described 140 cases since 1940 including our two conservatively managed patients. The salient aspects of ISHs are discussed in an analysis of the pertinent literature.
