A case of bilateral compression femoral neuropathy due to iliopsoas muscle hematomas during anticoagulant therapy is described. Diagnosis was confirmed with computed tomographic scan. The right hematoma was larger than the left and caused a more severe femoral neuropathy. The hematoma on the right side was surgically evacuated, and the left-sided one was treated conservatively. The patient had a complete recovery.
