Spontaneous subcapsular renal hematoma: diagnosis and treatment. Two case reports



Spontaneous subcapsular renal hematoma: diagnosis and treatment. Two case reports



Annales d'Urologie 36(1): 29-32



Spontaneous perirenal haematomas essentially raise the problem of the aetiological diagnosis, but can sometimes be inadequate. Arteriography is useful when CT scan is negative or in the case of vascular disease. The therapeutic attitude, nephrectomy or conservative treatment remains controversial, but in view of the frequency of renal neoplastic lesions, the authors recommend nephrectomy at the slightest doubt concerning renal integrity. When no case be found, the assessment must be completed postoperatively with long-term, close surveillance, due to the risk of an undiagnosed neoplastic lesion. The authors report two recent cases and try to propose a diagnostic and therapeutic strategy based on the aetiology.
