Abstract

Two patients with intramural haematoma of the duodenum following blunt abdominal injury are presented. They responded well to conservative treatment. Complete resolution of the duodenal obstruction was demonstrated by consecutive radiological studies. Because haematomas usually resolve spontaneously, awareness and diagnosis of this rare condition are important in order to prevent unnecessary operation.
