Abstract: A 70-year-old woman undergoing chronic maintenance hemodialysis had felt a mass in her left hip 4 years prior. As the mass gradually expanded, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed. The MRI findings showed mosaic patterns with various signal intensities inside the mass and a low-signal band at its periphery. Because of the slow expansion of the mass over a course of at least 4 years and its characteristic MRI findings, the patient was diagnosed with a chronic expanding hematoma (CEH), a comparatively rare type of hematoma. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a CEH occurring in a hemodialysis patient in the English literature.
