Abstract

A patient with subcapsular rupture of the spleen in association with indirect torsion trauma is reported. The spleen was surrounded by bands and adherent organs. The injury was considered to have been caused by a stretched band. In patients with hemoperitoneum, celiac angiography is advocated for diagnosis when immediate surgery is not indicated.
