Spontaneous intramural hematoma of the esophagus constitutes a rare spectrum of esophageal injuries. Chest pain, difficulty swallowing and hematemesis are the most common symptoms. They resolve spontaneously in most cases.  Awareness of this condition is a vital guide for following up these cases and for avoiding inappropriate treatment and unnecessary surgical intervention.  We report the case of a patient who presented with chest pain and hematemesis

Keywords : Esophagus; spontaneous hematoma; chest pain.
