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...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Septic emboli (SE) associated with infectious endocarditis (IE) can result in splenic abscesses and infectious intracranial aneurysms (IIA). We investigated the impact of SE on patient outcomes following surgery for IE. METHOD: From January-2000 to October-2015, all patients with surgical IE (n = 437) were evaluated for incidence and management of SE. RESULTS: Overall SE was found in 46/437 (10.52%) patients (n = 17 spleen, 13 brain, and 16 both)...

Splenic abscess is a rare complication of systemic infection, sometimes associated with infective endocarditis. Due to its rarity and nonspecific symptoms, diagnosis is difficult. Antibiotic therapy alone is usually unsuccessful, and definitive treatment requires splenectomy, although percutaneous ultrasound-guided drainage has been successful in some patients. Abdominal computed tomography scans and ultrasound evaluation are usually diagnostic. We present two patients with treatment-resistant sepsis who were found at autopsy to have splenic abscess...

Melioidosis, being increasing, is reported from India. Gastrointestinal manifestations are typically reported as unusual cause of liver and/or splenic abscess. We aimed to describe various gastrointestinal manifestation of melioidosis in the present study. We retrospectively collected data of culture positive melioidosis cases from hospital database during August 2014-October 2016 at Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, Hyderabad. A total of nine culture positive cases (8 male) of melioidosis with median age of 40 years (range 23-66) were analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: Brucella is a zoonotic infection commonly diagnosed by isolation of the organism from blood culture or positive serological testing. It is an uncommon cause of a pyrexia of unknown origin in the United Kingdom. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe the case of a 14-year-old girl with no history of travel who presented with pyrexia, weight loss, arthralgia, multiple splenic abscesses and a subsequent pleural effusion, the latter of which isolated a Brucella species on 16S rRNA PCR...

Ultrasound reports of 102 children with microbiologically confirmed or clinically diagnosed pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) showed that 23/37 (64%) and 23/65 (36%) had TB suggestive abdominal lymphadenopathy and 16/37 (44%) and 8/65(13%) had splenic micro-abscesses, respectively. Splenic micro-abscesses were associated with HIV-infection (p=0.041). These data suggest that pulmonary TB is often complicated by abdominal TB in children.

Brucellosis remains as a significant public health concern in many areas where the infection persists in domestic hosts (i.e. goats, cattle, and domestic swine) with subsequent risk of transmission to human populations. Brucellosis caused by B. suis remains an important threat to human populations in many countries exposed to domestic and feral swine. In the U.S., swine brucellosis has been under control for many years. Meanwhile, it is a widespread infection among feral swine, particularly in the Southeastern United States; and exposure to infected animals pose a growing threat to humans...

The protective role of Sickle Cell Trait (SCT) in malaria endemic areas has been proved, and prevalence of HbS gene in malaria endemic areas is high. Splenic infarction is a well-known complication of SCT, while the association with malaria is considered rare. A Nigerian boy was admitted to our ward after returning from his country of origin, for P. falciparum malaria. He underwent abdominal ultrasound for upper right abdominal pain, showing cholecystitis and multiple splenic lesions suggestive of abscesses...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is gaining popularity for the treatment of morbid obesity. It is a simple, low-cost procedure resulting in significant weight loss within a short period of time. LSG is a safe procedure with a low complication rate. The most significant complications are staple-line bleeding, stricture, and staple-line leak. Formation of liver and splenic abscesses is an extremely rare consequence of LSG. Liver abscess has been reported in one case report while splenic abscess has been reported in five case reports after LSG...
