A seventeen-year-old man with hemophilia A developed nausea, vomiting, and unsteady gait after mild head trauma. Magnetic resonance imaging clearly demonstrated localized bleeding in cerebellar vermis. Quick administration of factor VIII concentrates prevented further extension of the bleeding and the patient completely recovered without neuro logic impairment. In hemophiliac patients, careful evaluation of intracranial lesions is desired after head trauma even if they show only nonspecific symptoms.
