    Septal hematoma is accumulation of blood in the subperichondrial compartment of nasal septum. It is commonly caused by injuries involving the nose and face. Unilateral septal hematoma commonly heals causing fibrosis to occur between the septal cartilage and the perichondrium. Bilateral septal hematoma compromises blood supply to nasal septum causing liquefaction necrosis of septal cartilage. This ultimately leads to depressed dorsum of nose.
