Abstract Non traumatic spontaneous epidural Haematoma is a rare and often unmentioned complication of sickle cell disease. It is often associated with skull bone infarction. We report an eighteen year old boy with sickle cell anaemia who developed persistence headache during a vaso-occlusive crisis. Brain computed tomography (CT) revealed a right frontal epidural Haematoma (EDH) compressing on the brain. No other etiologic factor was identified. A right frontal craniotomy and evacuation of the Haematoma was performed and he made good recovery. The possible pathogeneses of this rare condition are discussed.
