Spontaneous abdominal wall hematoma: Case report and literature review
The spontaneous abdominal wall hematoma is an infrequent entity which corresponds to the accumulation of blood in the sheath of the rectus abdominis muscle. We report a case of a patient admitted with chronic heart failure, hypertension, chronic atria fibrillation and chronic renal failure that, although with normal coagulation tests results, developed a spontaneous bleeding in the abdominal wall. Conservative treatment was adopted with success. A review of the literature about the subject and a discussion about the more appropriated approach are followed.
