Spontaneous chronic subdural hematoma associated with neoplasm is a rare disorder. A rare case of chronic subdural hematoma associated with acute biphenotypic leukemia presented here. A 78-year-old woman who diagnosed as acute biphenotypic leukemia by hematology was complicated with a large chronic subdural hematoma. She presented to our emergency medicine service of hospital with left-sided weakness. Her non-contrast brain computerized tomography scan showed a non-traumatic right-sided, large, chronic subdural hematoma. She was treated with urgent hematoma evacuation by neurosurgery and had no neurological deficits after that operation. The case highlights the importance of paying attention to acute biphenotypic leukemia patients for important complications such as subdural hematomas.

Keywords: Subdural hematoma, acute biphenotypic leukemia
