A case of chronic subdural hematoma and hydrocephalus diagnosed in utero is presented. No history of trauma could be elicited. Laboratory investigations failed to show a coagulation disorder. Both the hematoma and hydrocephalus were surgically treated 8 days after delivery. At 14 months of age the child is showing moderately delayed development. The literature is reviewed and discussed. The importance of correct antenatal diagnosis is stressed.
