Bruising

Key points Ecchymosis is an extravasation of blood in a tissue, the result of a blunt trauma able to damage the walls of blood vessels, without interrupting the integuments. Ecchymosis: causes The most frequent ecchymoses are induced by traumas or minor-to-moderate contusions. In addition to these elements, ecchymoses may result in alterations in blood coagulation (hemophilia, leukemia, thrombocytopenia), some diseases (phlebitis, lupus, scurvy) and anticoagulant therapies

Hematoma or Ecchymosis

SIMILARITIES Both hematoma and ecchymosis identify extravasation of blood concentrated outside the blood vessels, an expression of trauma capable of breaking the vessel walls, without injuring the skin Both hematoma and ecchymosis are induced by trauma, bumps or bruises Both bruises can be favored by alterations in the coagulation capacity of the blood (leukemia, thrombocytopenia, hemophilia) and by anticoagulant therapies The lesions modulate the color scheme with the passage of time: the hematomas and ecchymoses, at first red, become blue / violet, then green and, finally, yellow They can be

Blood flows out of the circulation, concentrates in a tissue or in a cavity of the organism, and gives rise to a hematoma. Hematoma: causes In addition to traumas and bruises, the hematoma can also be caused by other factors: alteration of coagulation (thrombocytopenia, hemophilia), surgical wounds, leukemia, anticoagulant therapy (heparin, dicumarol, etc
