Abstract

A clival epidural hematoma is a rare lesion that usually develops after a hyperflexion or hyperextension injury of the neck, often in a child. A 5-year-old girl presented after a motor vehicle accident with multiple cranial neuropathies, including bilateral abducens nerve pareses and right facial, glossopharyngeal, and hypoglossal cranial nerve palsies. Neuroimaging identified a clival epidural hematoma. The child was observed and the hematoma resolved. The abducens nerve palsies resolved during the ensuing 14 months.
