Abstract

BackgroundAcute lymphoblastic leukemia is a rare hematological malignancy. Pure subdural hemorrhages in a patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia patient are extremely rare.

Case presentationThis case presented acute spontaneous subdural hemorrhage without head trauma at first, and acute lymphoblastic leukemia was diagnosed later. The second time, the patient was admitted with multiple pure subdural hemorrhages in different locations and periods with a history of slight head trauma.

ConclusionsPure subdural hemorrhages can occur in a patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. More care would be needed for pure subdural hemorrhages without obvious head trauma, and patients with hematological malignancies should be protected from even mild head trauma.
