This case describes a beforehand effectively 90-year-old lady who introduced with neck ache, swelling, dysphagia and hoarseness following a motorcar collision. Oesophageal oedema was visualised on CT of cervical backbone and subsequent CT angiography highlighted an actively bleeding intramural oesophageal haematoma (IOH) extending from the cervical oesophagus to the carina. This uncommon phenomenon (IOH) has been described as a potential consequence of blunt trauma to the neck; nevertheless, we discovered no circumstances ensuing from acceleration/deceleration damage. Though this was a probably life-threatening damage, our affected person made a full restoration with conservative administration.
