Chronic expanding hematoma, ruptured through the skin 53 years after buttock contusion.

Morioka D, Ohkubo F, Umezawa K - Int J Surg Case Rep (2014)

Bottom Line: There are no reports of lesions rupturing through the skin.There is a report of a thorax CEH that ruptured into the lung parenchyma after 24 years, so it is conceivable that other subcutaneous CEHs could break through the skin several decades after their inception.Once this lesion has ruptured, its differentiation from other entities becomes more complicated.

fig0010: Enhanced computed tomography, showing a homogenous mass with partial ring enhancement (arrow).

Mentions: The patient was referred to the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery after the biopsy. Her physical examination revealed a bleeding tumor, measuring 5 cm × 5 cm, on the right buttock (Fig. 1). Her blood count and coagulation profile were normal. Computed tomography (CT) demonstrated a solid, homogenous mass in the subcutaneous tissue, with iso-density to muscle and partial ring enhancement (Fig. 2). A diagnosis of CEH was made based on the results of the biopsy, physical examination, and CT.
