In this report, we present an unusual case of a patient who sustained and survived an intramyocardial dissecting hematoma with subacute ventricular rupture complicating a motor vehicle accident. In conclusion, we report on the diagnosis, management, and prior literature of this highly unusual and often lethal condition.
