摘要

Nontraumatic intracranial subdural hemorrhage may result from disorders at remote anatomic sites. Here, we report a young adult who suffered from bilateral subdural hematoma without antecedent head injury. The subdural hematoma did not resolve after surgical drainage. The symptom of postural headache prompted a contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination of the brain, which revealed signs indicative of intracranial hypotension. Subsequently, MRI of the spine demonstrated leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the upper cervical spine region. The patient recovered after conservative treatment. A review of the patient's medical history revealed that the patient had chiropractic therapy on his neck 2 months prior to admission. Intracranial hypotension due to spinal CSF leak is a rare cause of subdural hemorrhage, yet it should be considered in the absence of head trauma.
