In patients with chronic liver disease (CLD), there is a likelihood of bowel pathogens producing bacteremia, as the microbial filter function of the liver is lost. We describe a case of hematogenous seeding of chronic subdural hemorrhage (SDH) resulting from an unrecognized cranial injury in a patient with CLD.
