Obstructive uropathy secondary to rectus sheath hematoma.

Academic Article


  • Rectus sheath hematoma (RSH) is uncommon and is often reported in the setting of anticoagulation or trauma. Typically RSH presents with localized or diffuse abdominal pain and a fixed abdominal wall mass, however, various presentations and complications have been reported depending on the setting and extent of the hematoma. We report a case of a rapidly expanding RSH causing obstructive anuria and hydronephrosis in addition to a review of literature on this rare presentation of RSH.
