A young primi-gravida with pre-eclamptic toxaemia underwent an elective caesarean at 38 weeks. On 10th day of delivery, she suddenly developed symptoms and signs of right cerebello-pontine angle lesion. On investigation a haematoma with a fluid level could be identified. Coagulation parameters were deranged and blood culture grew coagulase negative staphylococcus aureus. Possible causes of intracranial haematoma at such an unusual location are discussed.
