Spontaneous nongastrointestinal bleeding in patients treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is an extremely rare occurrence. Herein, the case of a 60-year-old woman with severe bilateral hip osteoarthritis treated with diclofenac sodium, who presented with manifestations of a spontaneous hematoma of the right thigh, is described. There was no history of trauma or family history of bleeding disorder. Thorough investigation excluded a hemorrhagic disorder. The patient was treated conservatively with success and was advised to discontinue diclofenac.
