Anticoagulation has inherent quality to produce bleeding complications, more frequently in the elderly. Usual sites following anticoagulation is gastrointestinal, nasal, intracranial hemorrhage or petechial bleed. Here were reporting unusual sites of anticoagulation induced bleed. Rectus sheath hematoma is an unusual bleeding site, can mimic acute abdomen. Bleeding into intestinal wall can produce intussusception and presentation will be again as acute abdomen. Similarly, Sub lingual space is an unexpected site of bleeding and can present as upper airway obstruction or esophageal obstruction. Here we report one case of rectal sheath hematoma, 2 cases of sublingual hematoma and one case in the intestinal wall hematoma due to oral anticoagulation.
