Delayed splenic rupture is a rare complication of blunt abdominal trauma in which the time interval from injury to splenic rupture is > 48 hours. The diagnosis can be challenging if the history of trauma is remote, or initially missed, because symptoms may present subtly and without classic historical associations. We report a case of delayed rupture of the spleen from remote, minor trauma that required an emergency splenectomy.
Key Words: abdominal injury; splenic rupture; trauma
