Atraumatic subdural bleed often presents with diagnostic and management dilemma. This is a case of a 36-year male who presented with acute onset headache while at rest without any focal neurodeficit. Computed Tomographic Scan of brain revealed subdural hematoma. Cerebral Digital Subtraction Angiography showed a same sided focal dye extravasation which corresponded exactly to the inner margin of the subdural bleed. Though the patient opted out for surgical management this imaging and DSA finding correlated with the “Ghost Aneurysm” concept in acute atraumatic subdural bleeds and its early recognition is an important imaging marker for caution for hematoma expansion.
