To the Editor: Reading the excellent Christmas edition of the Journal, I was struck by the symmetry of the computed tomography scans of rectus sheath haematomas in a husband and wife, reported by James and colleagues1 (Box). I was wondering if the couple had not been involved in a minor car accident or incident of heavy braking several days earlier, where the lap–sash or buckle of a seatbelt might explain the mirror injuries?
