The case report and review of the relevant literature on symptomatology and clinical management is presented. Emphasis is made about the importance of including splenic rupture as differential diagnosis for acute abdominal pain, especially in a patient with neoplastic hematopathology, since early treatment increases patient survival and prognosis.
