Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of iliac and femoral veins is a common condition in our clinical practice. Spontaneous retroperitoneal hematoma (SRH) is a relatively rare condition. The occurrence of both DVT and SRH concomitantly is very rare. Many of the times the exact pathology leading to SRH with DVT is unknown. Both conditions being fatal in nature, the management remains very challenging. Here we report a similar case with review of the literature.
