Atraumatic rupture of the spleen is an uncommon but important clinical entity. Isolated cases of spontaneous splenic rupture have not been reported in hemodialysis patients.
An unusual case is reported of spontaneous rupture of the spleen in a 54 year old woman suffering from end stage renal failure secondary to chronic pyelonephritis.
The spontaneous splenic rupture was thought be attributed to both heparinization during hemodialysis and uremic coagulopathy of end stage renal failure.
