Resumen

MOREJON GARCIA, Moisés; MEDERO TRUJILLO, Orestes  y  ALADRO HERNANDEZ, Fernando. Splenic abscess. Review of this subject. Rev cubana med [online]. 2014, vol.53, n.1, pp.91-96. ISSN 0034-7523.

Splenic abscesses are infrequent conditions but with high mortality. Currently,immunosuppression cases have increased their incidence, usually caused by septic metastases from systemic infections, very frequently by bacterial endocarditis. A patient with a history of chronic lymphangitis is presented here. This patiente showed a prolonged febrile syndrome of unknown etiology. During admission, painful splenomegaly on palpation was noted and abdominal ultrasound confirmed a hypoechoic injury in enlarged spleen. Antibiotic treatment was applied, but since no satisfactory clinical response was seen, splenectomy was decided to perform. Good and favorable clinical response was obtained.

Palabras clave : splenic abscess; splenectomy; splenomegaly.
