New oral anticoagulants have emerged as an alternative for warfarin for thromboembolic prevention in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation. Although new oral anticoagulants have better compliance and safety margin compared to warfarin, we must be cautious with their usage. In this article, we report a case of spontaneous hemothorax related to rivaroxaban treatment. According to our research, this is the first case of spontaneous hemothorax secondary to rivaroxaban treatment.
