Introduction: Spontaneous haematomas of the kidney are rare. They pose two problems: the first is their aetiology, in which tumour pathology is dominant, and the second is their management. Through a series of 7 cases of spontaneous hematoma of the kidney, we discuss the role of imaging in the etiological diagnosis and the management of this condition.
Material and Methods: Seven cases of spontaneous kidney haematoma were managed between December 2020 and January 2023. These were 5 women and 2 men, with a mean age of 61 years.
Discussion: The first case of HSR was described in 1856 by Wunderlich, since when hundreds of cases have been reported in the literature. The clinical symptomatology varies according to the duration and extent of the bleeding. The typical clinical picture is represented by the Lenk triad: back pain, signs of bleeding and a retroperitoneal mass [3,4,7].
