Diffuse cerebral vasospasm is a rare complication following tumour resection. This phenomenon seems to be even rarer in the paediatric population and more so following resections of posterior fossa tumours. Here we report diffuse cerebral vasospasm in a child with hypoglossal nerve Schwannoma eight days following resection of the tumour.
