Abstract

Splenic rupture in pregnancy or postpartum is a rare and frequently misdiagnosed occurrence. Failure to recognise it is common, and can be fatal for both mother and child. With all our highly developed diagnostic methods and equipment, aetiology of splenic ruptures in pregnancy remains a dilemma in many cases.
