A seven-month0old hemophiliac infant developed intracerebral, subdural and intraventricular hematomas and hydrocephalus. Removal of hematomas and placement of ventriculoperitoneal shunt could be performed quite safely even in an infant under the cover of highly potent human antihemophilic factor concentrate. Computerized tomography is very useful for neurosurgical care of the hemophiliac patients as a noninvasive and atraumatic method of examination. Intracranial bleeding is listed as the most common cause of death among hemophiliacs. The literature of intracranial operations on the patients with hemophilia A is reviewed.
