ROCCO, Roberto; BENEDETTI, Laura; PANNOCCHIA, Cecilia  and  MISCIONE, Horacio. Hematoma traumático del psoas. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2006, vol.104, n.6, pp.532-536. ISSN 0325-0075.

Psoas hematomas are usually seen in patients with hemophilia or other blood dyscrasias, and as a complication of anticoagulant treatments. With less frequency they may be found in healthy persons as a result of traumatic muscle rupture. Similar causes produce hematomas in the iliac muscle. The paralysis of the femoral nerve is the most serious and frequent complication in both conditions. These clinical pictures are often referred to as iliopsoas hematoma and they are generally considered together owing to the anatomic, etiologic, pathologic and clinical features that present. We describe a boy of 12 years and 8 month old, with no coagulopathy, who suffered a psoas hematoma of traumatic origin.

Keywords : Psoas hematoma of traumatic origin; Paralysis of the femoral nerve.
