Nor Hanipah, Zubaidah and Liew, Ngoh Chin (2014) Spontaneous calf haematoma: case report. Medical Journal of Malaysia, 69 (1). pp. 44-45. ISSN 0300-5283


Spontaneous calf haematoma is a rare condition and few case reports have been published in the English literature. Common conditions like deep vein thrombosis and traumatic gastrocnemius muscle tear need to be considered when a patient presents with unilateral calf swelling and tenderness. Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging are essential for confirmation of diagnosis. The purpose of this paper is to report on a rare case of spontaneous calf hematoma and its diagnosis and management.
