Extradural hematoma (EDH) is usually a post-traumatic sequel but a few cases of spontaneous EDH have been reported. Here we report a woman who presented with spontaneous acute EDH but was later found to have dural metastasis from lung carcinoma. Causal factors have been present in all reported cases, as well as in this case. We propose the term non-traumatic EDH.
