Spontaneous resolution of a chronic subdural hematoma has been reported rarely in the literature. We present herein the case of a 35-year-old patient with spontaneous resolution of a large chronic subdural hematoma, the volume of which was measured as approximately 76.5 ml on magnetic resonance imaging. No pathology was determined on neurological examination. Neither cerebral angiography nor EEG showed any abnormality. We discuss the possible relation between mechanisms of physio-pathogenesis and spontaneous resolution of chronic subdural hematomas, and also present the patient characteristics together with the other literature data.
