Splenic tuberculosis (TB) in the form of multiple splenic cold abscesses with perisplenic extensions is a rare disease, especially in an immunocompetent host. It demonstrates diagnostic complexity, which makes identification of the disease difficult. We report a case of an immunocompetent adult male who presented with fever, pain in the left lower chest, decreased appetite, and significant weight loss. On physical examination, he had tenderness in the left lower infra-axillary region and Traube's space dullness without palpable spleen...

Colon cancer is among the common malignancies. Common cancer-related complications are regional tumor extension, obstruction, and tumor perforation. Abscess formation is among the rare complications. We report a case of a 60-year-old female who presented with shortness of breath and left upper quadrant pain and was diagnosed with splenic abscess associated with colon cancer. This type of presentation necessitates an early surgical intervention.

A 26-year-old woman presented with a 5-day history of fever and 3-day history of left upper quadrant abdominal pain and cough associated with left shoulder tip pain. Initial blood cultures did not display growth. On CT imaging, there was a cyst measuring 7.2×8 cm originally interpreted to be haemorrhagic in nature. Repeat cultures during admission revealed Salmonella Thompson. Percutaneous drainage and antibiotic treatment, rather than splenectomy, was successfully pursued with the patient afebrile and in no pain at 6 weeks follow-up...

A 73-year-old man presented with fatigue and weight loss. He had CT-proven splenic mass with fistulous connection to the greater curvature of the stomach, which suggested abscess. FDG PET/CT confirmed gastrosplenic fistula in addition to active lymph nodes in the gastrohepatic ligament and epigastric region. Pathological examination after the biopsy of the spleen was consistent with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Chemotherapy was administered with close clinical follow-up and resulted in the resolution of fistula without requirement for surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Splenic abscess (SA) is a rare potentially fatal condition in the paediatric population. It is difficult to diagnose given its non-specific presentation. There are no current guidelines for management of SA in this population but splenic preservation is advantageous given the vital role the spleen plays in immunity. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present a case of a 15-year-old boy with a large splenic abscess. He underwent successful partial splenectomy with resolution of his symptoms thereafter...

INTRODUCTION: Splenic abscesses are rare in immunocompetent adults. Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, these abscesses are still potentially life threatening. Various factors have been reported to predispose otherwise immunocompetent adults to splenic abscesses. Splenectomy was once considered the "gold standard" treatment. However, the trend is shifting to a conservative approach. CASE DESCRIPTION: We describe seven cases of splenic abscess in immunocompetent adults, the cause of which ranged from tuberculosis to salmonella and was as rare as Plasmodium vivax...

Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is an abnormal blood vessel connecting a pulmonary artery and a vein, and is accompanied by paradoxical embolism to other organs due to a right-to-left shunt. We report the case of a 66-year-old woman with PAVM complicated by splenic infarction and abscess. Although the PAVM had been detected on a chest image 2 years previously, and she had been advised to have further investigations, she decided not to follow this further at the time. She then visited our hospital complaining of worsening dyspnoea on exertion...

RATIONALE: Splenosis is the development of one or more heterotopic splenic tissue autoimplants following rupture of the spleen and remains mostly asymptomatic. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of a 50-year old post-traumatic splenectomized man admitted for a left side community acquired pneumonia resistant to antibiotics. DIAGNOSES: The diagnosis of intrathoracic ectopic spleen was suspected because of the history of spleen trauma with diaphragm rupture and the absence of Howell-Jolly bodies...

Splenic infarction is rare and occurs when the splenic artery or its branches become occluded, either by an embolus or by in situ thrombosis. In situ thrombosis of splenic artery leading to splenic and pancreatic abscess formation after infarction is rare. We here present a case of a 65-year-old man who was found to have acute complete splenic and distal pancreatic infarction and abscess formation attributable to in situ thrombosis of splenic artery.

We report the case of a 5-year-old male patient with multiple aseptic splenic abscesses associated with Behçet's disease. The patient visited Gachon University Gil Hospital with fever, abdominal pain, and acute watery and bloody diarrhea, and reported a 2-year history of chronic abdominal pain and intermittent watery diarrhea. He was treated with antibiotics at a local clinic for fever and cervical lymph node swelling. Additionally, he had recurrent stomatitis. A colonoscopy showed multiple well-demarcated ulcerations throughout the colon, and abdominal computed tomography showed multiple splenic abscesses...

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is one of the modern management therapies in patients with advanced heart failure, and it serves as a bridge to heart transplantation or even as destination therapy. However, it is burdened with a high risk of thromboembolic, hemorrhagic, and infectious complications despite prophylactic management. Splenic abscesses, as septic complications following implantation of mechanical ventricular support, have not yet been described in the literature. We report of a patient with severe left ventricular insufficiency (NYHA II/III), pulmonary hypertension, and arrhythmia who underwent implantation of the Heart Ware® pump for left ventricular support with simultaneous tricuspidvalvoplasty, as a bridge therapy to heart transplantation...

INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal tuberculosis is common in the developing world especially in the lower socioeconomic groups. In elderly, it may mimic malignancy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 46-year-old female presented with a 6 month history of diffuse pain in abdomen with low grade fever and loss of weight and appetite. Clinically, differential of malignancy of the large bowel was considered. The computerized tomography(CT) scan of the abdomen revealed a diffuse concentric long segmental thickening of terminal ileum, ileo ceacal junction, ascending colon and narrowing of the transverse colonic end of the splenic flexure suggesting an infective etiology...

Splenic abscess as a complication of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is rare. There have only been six cases in the literature. In most of these cases, the classic predisposing factors for developing splenic abscess were absent, leading to the hypothesis that transient bacteraemia caused by mucosal disruption during the surgical procedure and splenic ischaemia may play a role. These patients usually present in the late post-operative period with abdominal pain, fever and leucocytosis. The preferred treatment is intravenous antibiotics and percutaneous drainage or splenectomy...

Splenic rupture is a rare but serious complication from cocaine abuse. Given the ubiquitous prevalence of abuse and the potential for death from intraperitoneal bleeding, the prompt diagnosis and treatment of cocaine-induced disease including splenic rupture is essential. The management for splenic rupture from traumatic and atraumatic etiology has shifted from emergent laparotomy and splenectomy to non-operative approach with transcatheter splenic artery embolization. We report a 39-year-old male with a significant substance abuse history who presented with atraumatic splenic rupture...
