Como principio quirurgico se ha descrito que el manejo inicial de todo empiema subtentorial debe ser con craniectomia descompresiva suboccipital (1, 2, 9), especialmente cuando la coleccion se extiende hasta el angulo pontocerebeloso (9), haciendo hincapie en que los empiemas subdurales infratentoriales no son ni deben ser manejados con trepano (12) en el contexto de una patologia de rapido crecimiento con efecto de masa importante que genera compresion y repercusion clinica rapida, con repercusiones neurologicas importantes y una alta mortalidad de hasta el 45 % y con una morbilidad del 20 % a pesar del manejo agresivo dual (3, 4, 7).

The deep suboccipital muscles including the rectus capitis posterior major (RCPma), rectus capitis posterior minor (RCPmi), obliquus capitis superior (OCS),and obliqus capitis inferior (OCI), located between the inferior nuchal line of the occipital bone and the dorsal aspect of the axis, are indispensable in maintaining head posture and in proprioception.

While a group of authors stated that such anatomical variations could be due to the ossification of the posterior atlanto-occipital membrane or acquired ossification of the oblique ligament (lateral border of the posterior atlanto-occipital membrane which forms the aperture for the vertebral artery and the suboccipital nerve) as a consequence of the vertebral artery pulsation [3, 9], others claimed that the PP might be related to erect posture and bipedalism [14, 17].
The most common symptom in adults is the suboccipital headache (McVige & Leonardo, 2015), in up to 60-70% of cases, but dizziness, ataxia, and neuropathy of the last cranial nerves can also manifest, as well as dysphagia and dysphonia, spastic tetraparesis and sensory loss (Grazzi & Andrasik, 2012).
