Any volume differences of hematoma was detected on control CT. Epidural hematoma has been disappeared with conservative treatment after 6 months. This case was reported due to high cervical location and rarity of the hematoma, asymptomatic presentation because of the anatomical characteristics. Conservative treatment has to be choice with radiological control in the patients with minor neurologic findings, stable or improved status. However, emergency decompression has to be performed in neurologically deteriorated patient.
