Intramural hematoma of the esophagus after thrombolysis for ischemic stroke
We report the case of an 88-year-old woman who developed an intramural hematoma of the esophagus after intravenous thrombolysis for an acute ischemic stroke. Before thrombolysis, nasogastric intubation was attempted unsuccessfully. She was kept on nil by mouth, intravenous hydration, proton pump inhibitor, antiemetics, and an antibiotic initiated 2 days before for periodontal disease.
