Academic Journal
A case of localized intrapericardial hematoma following blunt chest trauma is presented. No similar case has been reported. Pulmonary angiography should be obtained if the aortogram is normal in patients with mediastinal widening following blunt chest trauma.

    Numerous bleeding episodes, neurological signs and symptoms, and pulmonary arteriovenous malformations are well documented in reports of families with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. It is always assumed that these are due to the arteriovenous malformations. We are here reporting a case...
