ABSTRACT   Spontaneous or secondary spinal haematomas are very rare. Within these, they can be identified extradural or subdural hematomas, which are the least common of all. The authors present a clinical case of an anticoagulated patient who developed a spinal subdural haematoma. The patient was operated in paraplegia, with poor subsequent evolution. We highlights how rare this type of lesions, which has a variable clinical presentation. It should have a high index of suspicion for early diagnosis and treatment, because the patient's functional prognosis depends on early evacuation.

Keywords : Spinal Hematoma; subdural hematoma; spinal surgery.
