Abstract

The case of 16-year-old boy who incurred a subdural hematoma in the posterior fossa and an intracerebellar hematoma after a tangential civilian gunshot wound is reported. The skull was not fractured, and yet surgically significant clots required removal. The patient recovered. The discussion centers on the mechanism of injury and seriousness of tangential gunshot wounds and traumatic hematomas in the posterior fossa.
