Background: Intracranial bleeding has been reported in the literature associated with tooth extraction. Coagulation disorders are often associated with complications after dental extraction. In this case report, we describe a case of spontaneously intracranial subdural hematoma possible after tooth extraction.
Case description: The patient was a 26-y-old female without any underlying diseases. A computerized tomography scan showed a subdural hematoma 48 hours after the dental extraction. She was managed with a burr hole, good postoperative evolution and discharged to home.
Conclusion: Although rare, the presence of headache with signs of alarm after the extraction of a tooth, we must discard intracranial abnormalities. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report in the literature of a spontaneously intracranial subdural hematoma possible after tooth extraction.
