PONTES, Henrique Silva Thé e PEQUENO, Eugênio Albuquerque. Post-traumatic duodenal obstruction by intramural hematoma: a case report and literature review. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.4, pp. 235-237. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000400012.
Intramural duodenal hematomas secondary to blunt trauma, determining rapid luminal obstruction, are rare, benign lesions and may be confused with obstructive neoplastic conditions (either parietal or produced by extrinsic compression mechanisms). The present report describes a case of post‑traumatic intestinal obstruction by an intramural hematoma in the third duodenal segment. Imaging diagnosis and the conservative management of such obstruction are discussed.
