Abstract

Intramural duodenal hematoma is a rare cause of proximal gastrointestinal tract obstruction most frequently encountered in the setting of abdominal trauma or coagulation deficiencies. Here we report a case of a 75-year-old man who spontaneously developed an intramural duodenal hematoma with no apparent inciting event or risk factors.
