Background: Retroperitoneal encysted hematoma is rare. Early diagnosis is facilitated by computed tomography. The occurrence is often associated with an anticoagulant therapy. We report a case of retroperitoneal encysted hematoma in the elderly.

Case presentation: A 72-year-old man was admitted for a painless abdominal mass evolving for 6 months. In his history, he had an episode of ischemic stroke with antiplatelet treatment. Computed tomography showed a retroperitoneal encysted hematoma. Surgical resection was performed. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis.

Conclusion: The diagnosis of retroperitoneal encysted hematoma should be considered in any patients who presents abdominal pain or mass with risk factors as anticoagulant therapy. There is no consensus in the treatment, but surgery has a key place, allowing to eliminate neoplasms
