ALVAREZ G, Daniel; SCHIAPPACASSE F, Giancarlo; CASTRO S, Marcelo  y  SLATER M, Jeannie. Retroperitoneal hematoma of unusual cause: A case report. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.3, pp.107-110. ISSN 0717-9308.

The spontaneous retroperitoneal hematoma (SRH) is defined as a spontaneous hematic collection located in any of the retroperitoneal compartments. The most frequently encountered cause of retroperitoneal hemorrhage is a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, followed by renal and adrenal tumors, along with some other less common causes. Performing accurate diagnosis of patients at admission has proven to be difficult, given that the clinical presentation is ample and variable and may mimic other pictures of abdominal or lower back pain. Imaging techniques, mainly angiography, computed tomography, and MR Imaging, represent a fundamental tool for both timely diagnosis and proper management of the condition. We report the case of a 56-year-old male patient with diagnosis of HIV, who presented with a history of abdominal pain and palpable abdominal mass. After a thorough imaging evaluation, patient was diagnosed with retroperitoneal hematoma, whose histological analysis revealed a Burkitt lymphoma.
