ABSTRACT

A 36-year old man with neck pain developed an acute cervical prevertebral hematoma after acupuncture therapy at an oriental medicine hospital. MR imaging demonstrated a fluid collection, and this suggested a diagnosis of retropharyngeal hematoma, and the patient was managed conservatively. We report here on a case of a retropharyngeal hematoma following acupuncture therapy and we review the relevant literature.
