Abstract


Spontaneous splenic rupture is a rare but potential lethal complication of infectious mononucleosis. Although splenectomy is still the treatment of choice for patients with spontaneous splenic rupture, non-surgical management should be considered in carefully selected patients.
We describe the case of a 16-year-old girl with infectious mononucleosis and who had splenic rupture and who was treated by non-operative approach.
