Spontaneous intramural hematoma of the esophagus is a very rare disease. Varying degrees of submucosal rupture of the esophagus are caused by intramural hematoma of the esophagus. The causative factors include vomiting, an esophageal foreign body, endoscopic sclerotherapy for esophageal varices, equipment manipulation, drugs (e.g., warfarin and aspirin) and full-body disease (e.g., chronic renal failure, hemophilia and leukemia), and idiopathic causes have also been described. A 68-year-old male taking aspirin, clopidogrel and cilostazol was admitted to our hospital complaining of hematemesis. Spontaneous intramural hematoma of the esophagus was diagnosed by endoscopy. We report here on a case of spontaneous intramural hematoma of the esophagus that occurred after vomiting and the patient showed spontaneous improvement. We also review the relevant literature.
