A 14-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital with the complaints of epigastric pain and vomiting for three days following epigastric trauma. Physical examination revealed a palpable mass in the epigastrium without any signs of peritoneal irritation. Vital signs, biochemical analysis, chest and abdominal x-rays were normal. Abdominal US, CT and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed that there was a well-defined duodenal intramural mass suggesting hematoma. Intraabdominal solid organs were normal and we did not observe free air or extravasation of contrast media. Therefore, we followed up the patient by US. The hematoma completely resolved 48 days after the trauma.
