Acute subdural hematoma (aSDH) is a common pathology encountered after head trauma. Only a minority of aSDHs have an arterial source. In this article, we report a case of aSDH originating from a traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the distal segment of posterior cerebral artery (PCA), diagnosed several days after the initial minor trauma and successfully treated with endovascular coiling. This case emphasizes the importance of searching for vascular pathology when the localization, severity or relapsing course of the intracranial hemorrhage does not fully correspond to the severity of initial trauma and when the bleeding has a delayed onset. Characteristics, diagnostics and treatment possibilities of traumatic cerebral aneurysms, an important cause of arterial aSDH, are described in the article.
