Posterior fossa hemorrhage is rare in term baby and difficult to assess. The clinical signs are nonspecific and usually delay the diagnosis. We present a 5-day-old male neonate of posterior fossa hemorrhage with the initial presentations of fever and seizure and early deduced by cranial ultrasonography findings as hyperechoic, asymmetric, ill-defined density and complicated with hydrocephalus. Magnetic resonance imaging of the head verified the diagnosis. Hemophilia A was confirmed thereafter by serology.
