Abstract

Spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage is a major complication of anticoagulant therapy, with a report of 0.3% to 0.7% per year. Spontaneous posterior fossa acute subdural hematomas are very rare; to the best of our knowledge, only 10 cases have been previously reported in the literature. We report a further case with unusual radiologic findings in a thrombocytopenic and anticoagulated patient. We review the pertinent literature and discuss athe current management of this pathological entity.
