Abstract

Abstract Three cases of spontaneous bleeding into the wall of the lower oesophagus with submucosal haematoma formation are described. The presenting symptom was severe and constant pain behind the lower part of the sternum and in the lower part of the posterior chest. The patients were all women in the seventh decade of life and all seemed to have disordered function of the lower oesophagus and cardia. Despite the dramatic presentation, conservative treatment was sufficient in all cases.
