Spinal anesthesia and lumbar puncture may lead to intracerebral, subdural or subarachnoid bleeding and there have been previous reports on patients who developed subdural hematoma a few days after surgery on the spine. This is a case report of a patient who developed acute subdural hematoma during surgery performed to remove an intradural spine tumor. This report suggests that the possibility of an intracranial hematoma should be considered in cases of neurological deterioration following spinal surgery.
