Abstract
<jats:p>Splenic rupture following colonoscopy is rare, first reported in 1974, with incidence of 1–21/100,000.

Postoperative adhesions is a predisposing factor for splenic injury, and management is either operative or nonoperative, based on hemodynamic stability and/or extravasation which can be seen on contrast-enhanced CT scan of the abdomen. We present a case of a splenic rupture after colonoscopy in a patient with splenocolic adhesions, requiring splenectomy as definite tr...
