Abstract

A case of cardiac rupture following blunt trauma with no additional injuries is described. This can be a difficult diagnosis because of the presence of additional injuries and the lack of clinical symptoms. Here, there was a rupture of the pericardium, all chambers of the heart and the thoracic aorta.
