Nasal septal hematoma.

Author information

  • Department of Pediatrics, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, USA.

Abstract

Nasal septal hematoma is a rare but potentially serious complication of nasal trauma. Proper management consists of early recognition, prompt surgical evacuation of the hematoma, and antimicrobial therapy if a secondary nasal septal abscess is suspected. Clindamycin is recommended as initial therapy until the results of cultures and susceptibility studies are available.
