  • Description: First described in 1853 [1], the Morel-Lavallée lesion is a closed, post-traumatic, soft tissue degloving injury [1–3], characterized by an accumulation of blood, lymph, and other breakdown products between the subcutaneous tissue and underlying fascia [4] (Fig. 1). It is due to shearing stress with disruption of perforating blood vessels and the creation of potential spaces. Morel-Lavallée is most commonly associated with pelvic and acetabular fractures, but it may also occur at various locations [4]; the lesion has been reported occurring over the flank, buttock, lumbar spine, scapula, knee, and elsewhere.
