|Title:||Atraumatic splenic rupture in patient with acute pancreatitis.||Austin Authors:||Nadaraja, Roshini;Yahya, Zarif;Mori, Krinal ;Aly, Ahmad||Affiliation:||Surgery||Issue Date:||23-Mar-2021||Date:||2021-03-23||Publication information:||BMJ Case Reports 2021; 14(3): e238559||Abstract:||Atraumatic splenic rupture (ASR) is a rare complication of acute pancreatitis with high mortality and morbidity rates. We present a case of a 63-year-old woman with a history of hypertension, presenting with acute pancreatitis who subsequently developed a splenic rupture requiring a laparotomy and splenectomy. ASR is a rare but life-threatening complication requiring prompt recognition and management and should be considered in patient with pancreatitis who develops sudden haemodynamic compromise and worsening anaemia.||URI:||https://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/26133||DOI:||10.1136/bcr-2020-238559||Journal:||BMJ Case Reports||PubMed URL:||33758040||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||drugs: gastrointestinal system
