Iliacus muscle hematoma occurred in a patient receiving heparin for thrombophlebitis. It seemed that when the patient hyperextended the hip when resting in bed, severe pain was produced in the right iliac area, with femoral nerve paralysis and a decrease in the hematocrit level. In the initial stage the anticoagulants must be discontinued and bed rest instituted while the pain is present; then progressive exercises are permitted. Apparently, this complication of heparin administration is a self-limited condition that resolves spontaneously in a few weeks.
