(0 votes)

We present a case of a 69 year old female with a spontaneous, diffuse, painful, swollen and bruised anterior neck. She also had concurrent use of a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC), apixaban. We discuss the investigation and management of a spontaneous neck haematoma, as well as the management dilemmas with DOACs and severe bleeding.
