Complete and partial moles remit spontaneously in most cases, following evacuation of the uterine cavity. However, either persistent trophoblastic disease or a frank trophoblastic tumour can follow a complete hydatidiform mole. To our knowledge, acute subdural haematoma, as a complication of cerebral metastases, following treatment for hydatidiform mole has not been reported. We describe a 29-year-old woman who presented with spontaneous acute subdural haemorrhage and pulmonary metastases, eight months after evacuation of a complete hydatidiform mole, with a fatal outcome.
