This study reports and discusses clinical and neuroradiological findings in 22 new cases of posterior fossa epidural hematomas (PFEDHs), all of whom underwent surgical treatment after having suffered an occipital head trauma. The authors emphasize the importance of serial CT scans in establishing prompt diagnosis and treatment and in reducing the rates of morbidity (15.7%) and mortality (13.6%).
