We report three cases of isolated adrenal haematoma diagnosed at admission to the Emergency Department. Post-traumatic adrenal haematoma have been observed in 2% of patients with abdominal injury and can be life threatening in cases of bilateral haemorrhage with risk of acute adrenocortical insufficiency. Diagnosis remains difficult due to absence of clinical and biological specific parameters. Therefore, abdominal CT examination should be the gold standard in management of abdominal trauma patients.
