Spontaneous intramural duodenal hematoma is a rare problem, most commonly seen in children who have coagulation disorders. A child who had Glanzmann's thrombasthenia, a disorder of platelet function, presented with signs and symptoms of duodenal obstruction. Nonoperative management of an obstructing duodenal hematoma was successful and potentially life-threatening surgery was avoided.
