MOREJON GARCIA, Moisés; MEDERO TRUJILLO, Orestes  e  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.

Palavras-chave : splenic abscess; splenectomy; splenomegaly.
