The author postulates a rare syndrome which should be considered when craniocerebral trauma is followed by a lucid interval and then rapid deterioration of midbrain function. The diagnosis was made on the basis of an irregular mass in the floor of the third ventricle and bloody ventricular fluid. Today's availability of CAT scanning would provide a quicker and more certain diagnosis than was possible for the two cases reported, the author states.
