Subdural hematoma is a rare complication after lumbar spine surgeries. Most of the time, the reason for this complication is intracranial hypotension related to an unintended durotomy, and the main symptom is persistent orthostatic headache. The authors present the case of a-38-year-old woman who underwent lumbar discectomy. Three weeks after the surgery, she developed subdural hematoma related to dural tear during the procedure. Emergent hematoma evacuation with craniotomy and dural tear repair was performed simultaneously because of the herniation symptoms of the patient. Clinical findings, radiological assessments, and treatment modalities have been discussed in the presence of a literature review in this case report.
