The primary treatment modality for cerebellopontine
angle (CPA) tumors is surgery. In the postoperative
period, collection of subdural hygroma (SDH), is a
rarely encountered complication. This paper presents
a 58-year-old male patient who underwent surgery for
right acoustic neuroma and developed a SDH postoperatively.
SDH, even though rarely seen, is a serious
CPA tumor surgery complication calling for early
diagnosis and treatment. Definition, diagnosis, clinical
aspects and treatment of SDH are discussed.
