Splenic rupture: an infrequent but potentially severe complication after colonoscopy

82-83

Carmelo Diéguez Castillo, Mercedes López de Hierro, Eduardo Redondo-Cerezo,

Splenic rupture is an infrequent compilation and can be severe without an early diagnosis. We present the case of a 53-year-old female who had undergone colonoscopy 24 hours previously and presented to the ER due to pain in left hemithorax and hypotension. She was diagnosed with a splenic rupture via abdominal computed tomography (CT). An urgent splenectomy was performed with a favorable postoperative evolution. The clinical recognition of splenic rupture is vital due to the fact that we are not as familiarized with this condition as we are with hemorrhage and perforation after colonoscopy.
