- Differential Diagnosis
- Try building your search one term at a time, and be as specific as you can! Search term example: "chronic cough".
- Do not enter multiple findings such as "anemia, chronic cough, weight loss, vomiting" all at the same time.
- After selecting your term from the search results a list of possible diagnoses will be generated. If the list is too long, you will be able to narrow it down by entering additional terms.
- Do not enter values such as "heart rhythm 110" or "sodium 125", instead use "tachycardia" or "hyponatremia".

Retroperitoneal hemorrhage : accumulation of blood in the retroperitoneal space.
The retroperitoneal space : is the anatomical space in the abdominal cavity behind the peritoneum. It has no specific delineating anatomical structures. Organs are retroperitoneal if they have peritoneum on their anterior side only. Structures that are not suspended by mesentery in the abdominal cavity and that lie between the parietal peritoneum and abdominal wall are classified as retroperitoneal.
The retroperitoneum is a large space bounded :
Anteriorly , by the posterior parietal peritoneum .
Posteriorly , by the transversalis fascia .
Superiorly , by the diaphragm.
Inferiorly , it extends to the level of the pelvic brim .
