Spontaneous subdural hematoma is relatively rare. It has been reported as a complication of blood dyscrasias and, more recently, in association with ruptured aneurysm.1 Although bleeding into tissues and body cavities as a complication of anticoagulation treatment is well known, there is a paucity of reports describing the development of intracranial subdural hematoma. The reason for this paucity may reflect its rarity, but insofar as subdural hematoma is readily detectable and often successfully treated, special emphasis of this complication is warranted. The present communication is concerned with two cases of subdural hematoma in relation to Dicumarol therapy for myocardial infarction.
