Spontaneous extradural hematoma (EDH) is an uncommon form of intracranial hematoma and is caused by the adjacent sinus and otic infections, dural vascular malformations and disorders of blood coagulation. We report spontaneous EDH in a 54-year old women with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on intermittent hemodialysis. She was successfully managed by conservative treatment. The EDH in her was probably related to the coagulation abnormalities associated with CKD, hemodialysis or heparin use during the dialysis.
