  • Look Inside

A case is reported of post-traumatic delayed appearance of a pseudoaneurysm on the posterior meningeal artery. In the immediate post-traumatic stage, the patient had mild disturbance of consciousness, mild subarachnoid hemor-rhage, and mid-line skull fracture of the posterior cranial fossa. At 15 hours after the trauma, the patient suddenly de-veloped deep coma and respiratory arrest. CT scanning showed further spreading of the subarachnoid hemorrhage and newly detected subdural hemorrhage. After the patient regained spontaneous respiration, cerebral angiography was performed 24 hours after admission.
