Fetal subdural hematoma is an antenatal finding associated with significant morbidity and mortality. It can occur due to maternal or fetal risk factors, and its management varies based on the underlying cause and the anticipated long-term outcomes. We present a case of warfarin-associated fetal subdural hematoma resulting in a live birth and severe neurodevelopmental delay by 10 years of age. In conclusion, counseling regarding the risk of fetal intracranial hemorrhage and the potential neurodevelopmental delay is essential in women who require anticoagulation with warfarin. In addition, close antenatal follow-up with fetal sonography and strict INR monitoring are essential preventative measures.
