GOMEZ ZULETA, Martin; RODRIGUEZ GOMEZ, Álvaro  and  SIADO, Amaranto. Intramural esophageal hematoma: Dissection of the perforation. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.2, pp.129-133. ISSN 0120-9957.

Intramural esophageal hematomas are rare with few cases reported in the literature. Risk factors that affect the incidence of this condition include nausea and vomiting, but its most common clinical presentation is the triad of hematemesis, dysphagia and chest pain. Conservative treatment is best in most cases. We present our experience in 7 cases collected during the last 8 years in which you can see the entire spectrum of the disease from submucosal dissection to perforation of the esophagus

Keywords : Perforation; esophageal dissection; esophageal hematoma.
