Spinal subdural hematomas (SSDH) may present following minor or major trauma, or iatrogenic such as lumbar puncture. Neurological symptoms are usually severe, and rapid diagnosis with MRI is mandatory. Surgical evacuation has frequently been used therapeutically. Herein, we report on a 76-year-old male patient with a SSDH and paraplegia due to fall.
