Abstract

Intracranial subdural haemorrhage is one of the complications of spinal anaesthesia. It is a rare condition but extremely disastrous if not being treated promptly. It is usually mistaken with post spinal puncture headache. Hence, knowledge and awareness of this condition have to be instilled among clinicians to avoid life-threatening events.
