Spontaneous haematoma of the oesophagus is a rare cause of chest pain. We report the case of a 63-year-old female in whom spontaneous rupture of the oesophagus was suspected, but who was subsequently, found to have a dissecting intramural haematoma of the oesophagus. She successfully underwent mediastinal and thoracic drainage by right video-assisted thoracoscopy. Although conservative treatment is widely described in the literature, surgical treatment by right video-associated thoracoscopy may be a suitable alternative if there is a diagnostic doubt. Keywords: Dissecting intramural haematoma of the oesophagus; Video-associated thoracoscopy.
