Two cases of intracerebral pneumatocele following trauma are presented. One to two months after initial treatment both patients had deteriorating neurologic status. The diagnosis was made by radiography. When a pneumatocele is suspected clinically, computed tomography can play a vital role in determining the precise location of the gas collection, its relationship to the fracture site, and the amount of mass effect on the brain.
