Upward transtentorial herniation as a result of mass effect in the posterior fossa has been described in adults by several authors. We report the case of a premature infant, small for gestational age, who experienced rostral herniation of a portion of frontal lobe through the anterior fontanel as the result of a hemorrhagic cerebellar infarction followed by a large parieto-occipital intracerebral hemorrhage.
