We report intrauterine subdural hemorrhage in a preterm infant delivered by cesarean section at 32 weeks following vaginal bleeding of a mother treated with low-molecular weight heparin (LMWH) for deep vein thrombosis. The subdural hematomas were partially calcified, proving antenatal occurrence. Maternal trauma during pregnancy, intrauterine infection, cerebral vascular malformation and congenital coagulopathy as known etiologies of subdural hemorrhage could be ruled out. Intrauterine subdural hemorrhage may be an exceptional complication of maternal LMWH treatment.
