Abstract

Complications after i.m. injection are rare. Only few cases need emergency operative treatment. This case report shows the exclusive situation of a gluteal compartment syndrome caused by a hematoma. Clinical findings showed signs of nerve compression with sciatic pain. Only immediate surgical treatment prevented persistent nerve or muscle tissue damage.
