Posterior mediastinal hematoma
– a rare case following a fall from standing height: a case report
We present a previously unreported
complication of a fall from standing height.
A 76-year-old woman sustained
blunt chest trauma resulting from a fall from standing height. She was
diagnosed with a mediastinal hematoma, and did well with supportive care.
Follow up CT angiograms on days 2 and 4 of hospital stay revealed a stable
hematoma and she did not require any intervention.
Mediastinal hematoma has been
reported secondary to trauma, coagulation abnormalities and hematologic
malignancies, but it not been reported secondary to a fall from standing
height. Factors predisposing to a hematoma in this case were aspirin therapy
and a modest elevation of INR secondary to chronic hepatitis C.
