mass extending to the tentorium, was found. Tumour and haematoma were removed completely followed by uneventful postoperative recovery. The histological diagnosis was angiomatous
Conclusions: To prevent further life threatening complications, early diagnosis by carefully inspection of imaging and prompt surgical therapy is essential.
