|Abstract:||Rectus sheath haematoma is an uncommon condition. However, its incidence is increasing, attributed to greater use of anticoagulant therapy. We present the case of an 83-year-old woman on therapeutic enoxaparin for a prior pulmonary embolus who underwent elective right hemicolectomy and developed a rectus sheath haematoma 13 days postoperatively. Her extensive haematoma compressed retroperitoneal structures including the right ureter. She was successfully managed conservatively.|
