Spontaneous cervical hematomas could lead to life-threatening complications, and aneurysms, retopharyngeal abscesses, parathyroid adenomas, laryngeal cysts, and neurogenic tumors should be distinguished as possible underlying causes. Symptoms accompanying spontaneous cervical hematoma include cervical swelling, ecchymosis, dysphagia, dyspnea and hoarseness. We recently experienced a case of spontaneous cervical hematoma in a 52-year-old woman, who initially presented with cervical swelling after severe coughing two days ago. Resultingly parathyroid adenoma was finally confirmed after mass excision. Therefore, we present this unique case with a review of the literature.
