Abstract

Traumatic clival subdural hematoma is a very rare clinical entity. This rarity can result in delayed or missed diagnoses. Although several hypotheses are proposed to explain this lesion, the exact pathophysiology remains to be unknown. We present a case of low-molecular-weight heparin induced clival subdural hematoma, extending to the left cerebellopontine angle and causing left abducens nerve palsy which occured six days after trauma.
