Abstract

A 35-year-old woman presented with chronic intermittent left-sided hematuria. A massively enlarged spleen caused displacement of the left kidney and compression of the left renal vein, leading to pyelovenous congestion and subsequent hematuria. Splenectomy along with release of fibrous adhesions around the renal hilum cured the hematuria.
