Abstract

This study reports a case of spontaneous subcapsular splenic ruptured hematoma (with hemoperitoneum) and provides update on this rare disease. Non-traumatic ruptures can be fatal. Diagnosis is sometimes difficult. They often reveal an underlying pathology including infections, tumors or hematologic disorders. Symptomatology commonly has an abrupt onset but progressive forms are also possible. The majority of patients undergo splenectomy.
