Intramural duodenal haematoma (IDH) is uncommon and usually presents with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Trauma, anticoagulant therapy, blood coagulation disorders and endoscopic interventions have been reported to cause IDH. IDH secondary to antiplatelet therapy has not been previously reported in the literature. We report IDH secondary to aspirin therapy that was associated with transient obstructive jaundice and acute cholecystitis in a 47-year-old woman. The patient was successfully managed with conservative management.
