We propose a novel spin density wave (SDW) state as a possible mechanism of the anomalous antiferromagnetism, the so called micromagnetism, in URu2Si2 below 17.5 K. In this new SDW, the electron-hole pair amplitude changes its sign in the momentum space as in the case of the unconventional superconductivity. It is shown that this state can be realized in an extended Hubbard model within the mean field theory. We also examine some characteristic properties of this SDW to compare with the experimental results. All these properties well explain the unsolved problem of the micromagnetism.
