A spontaneous subdural hematoma (SDH) occurred in a 43-year-old woman during hospital administration. She had received endoscopic thyroidectomy for alleged papillary thyroid carcinoma. Unfortunately, she had a wound infection complicated from esophageal perforation. Therefore, she had to have parenteral nutrition to avoid per os administration of food materials. Five days after the operation, she received central line insertion uneventfully. However, 30 minutes later, she complained headache and lost consciousness in a few minutes. Brain CT revealed acute SDH of right hemisphere with severe midline shift. Emergency craniotomy revealed acute SDH. At the end of the removal of hematoma, small cortical artery at temporoparietal lobe was found to be ruptured. Spontaneous SDH form of arterial rupture has been rarely reported. All reported cases have a sudden onset headache followed by neurological deficit mostly progressed to comatose status. The verified origin of bleeding is a cortical artery near the temporal or parietal lobe.
