Subdural hematoma secondary to dural metastases is a rare event. Vascular obstruction due to invasion of dural vessels is an important etiological factor. When this is associated with a clotting defect, the subdural hematoma can cause significant clinical symptoms and death. Two cases are presented with a review of the literature.
