Abstract

Splenic hematoma is an unusual event in newborn babies. The present study report a two day old infant who presented to us in shok with severe pallor and abdominal distension. Initially ultrasonography of evaluation by ultrasound (US) revealed a left adrenal hemorrhage but was subsequently confirmed to be a subcapsular splenic hematoma by computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen. This article highlights the utility of CT scan in diagnosis although review of literature shows ultrasonography to be primary screening investigative modality for abdominal visceral bleeds in the neonatal period.
