A successfully managed case of posterior fossa subdural hematoma occurring in a hemophiliac is reported, and the rarity of this lesion is mentioned. The management of the hemophiliac who is a victim of craniocerebral trauma is discussed, with emphasis on the use of computerized tomographic scanning to obtain rapid diagnosis.
