Case: We present a 26-year-old active duty man who sustained a coccygeal fracture and gluteus maximus hematoma after a fall from height during training. The patient returned 3 weeks postinjury with symptoms and physical examination findings concerning for gluteal compartment syndrome. An expanding gluteal hematoma was confirmed on imaging and the patient was taken to the operating room for emergent evacuation and endovascular hemostasis. Conclusions: This case of gluteal compartment syndrome is a unique contribution to the literature with respect to the specific vascular injury observed and the delayed presentation of gluteal compartment syndrome.
