Rapid resolution of post-traumatic acute subdural hematoma is infrequently reported. We report a case of rapid spontaneous disappearance of post-traumatic acute subdural hematoma in one patient who was discovered to have a contralateral middle cranial fossa arachnoid cyst. The previously reported mechanisms responsible for the rapid spontaneous disappearance of post-traumatic acute subdural hematoma are reviewed and the contribution of the middle cranial fossa arachnoid cyst to the disappearance of the pos-traumatic acute subdural hematoma that has taken place in our case is discussed. To the best of our knowledge the association between spontaneous disappearance of post-traumatic acute subdural hematoma and arachnoid cysts has not been previously reported.
