Abstract

EXTRADURAL cerebellar hematoma is a condition not frequently encountered, and no report of recurrence of the condition with ultimate recovery has been found in the literature. Munslow1 in a recent report stated that only seven cases had been found in which extradural hematomae occurring below the tentorium had been recognized and cured. The report of the following case, in which there was recurrence of hemorrhage and exacerbation of symptoms three days after relief by a first operation, seems justified. REPORT OF CASE Peggy S., aged 6 years, fell from a bed of average height to the floor, striking on her head. She was not unconscious and not believed to be seriously injured. Shortly afterward, however, she began to complain of headache, and the following day she was nauseated, vomited, and had considerable restlessness. On Jan. 6, 1946, three days after the accident, she was admitted to the Bluefield Sanitarium,
