Two cases of tension pneumocephalus follwing surgery are reported. Tension pneumocephalus appears to be another potential complication of the operation and should be considered whenever a patient fail to recover as expected following surgery. Peaking of frontal lobe, mountain appearance of frontal lobe, and air densities at the cisterns are characteristic findings of tension pneumocephalus. Its diagnosis and treatment are easy and simple.
Key Words: Tension pneumocephalus; Chronic subdural hygroma; Posterior fossa surgery; Peaking; Mountain appearance
