Abstract

Hematoma is generally defined as a collection of blood outside of blood vessels. Most commonly, hematomas are caused by an injury to the wall of a blood vessel, prompting blood to seep out of the blood vessel into the surrounding tissues. A hematoma can result from an injury to an artery, vein, or small capillary. A patient with 12x12 cm Hematoma of left gluteal region associated with severe pain and local tenderness was taken for Jalaukavacharana (leech therapy) as primary line of management.
