Abstract

We report the case of a 66-year-old male patient who presented acute and sub-acute subdural hematomas complicating a grade I meningioma.

In the absence of trauma, detection of a subdural hematoma necessitates an etiologic research, in particular the exclusion of a vascular anomaly or a tumour. Subdural bleeding as a complication of a non malignant meningioma is a very rare and threatening situation and requires prompt surgical removal of the tumor.
