Spinal subdural hematoma is an uncommon entity having a higher incidence in patients with bleeding diathesis or receiving anticoagulant therapy. Lumbar puncture should be done meticulously especially in patients with a bleeding tendency. Spinal subdural hematoma should be considered as a possible diagnosis in patients with coagulopathy, having sustained a minor trauma, or having had a recent lumbar puncture, showing progressive neurological deficits suggestive of a spinal disorder. In such patients, early diagnosis and proper treatment is imperative in order to minimize any neurological sequelae. We report a case of a 7-month-old infant in a septic condition diagnosed with chronic spinal subdural hematoma that had occurred following repeated lumbar punctures.
