Extradural hematoma (EDH) in absence of trauma is a rare entity with only a few cases reported in the literature. The various causes reported include Vascular malformation of the dura, coagulopathies, sinus infection, middle ear or orbital infection, and tumor. The occurrence of spontaneous EDH as a complication of sickle cell disease is even much rarer. We report a case with sickle cell disease who presented with spontaneous extradural and subgaleal hematomas following an episode of vaso-occlusive crisis. He was managed successfully with surgery. The association of epidural hematomas in sickling hemoglobinopathies is reviewed.
