Spinal chronic subdural haematomas (SSDH) are extremely rare. We report a case of a SSDH combined with intracranial SDH. After tapping the SSDH in addition to the evacuation of SDH, the clinical symptoms dramatically improved. SSDH are considered to have an uncertain prognosis; however, good results can be obtained with an early diagnosis and prompt treatment.
