A 76 year old woman presented acutely with non-traumatic splenic rupture, which was successfully treated by emergency splenectomy. Histological examination of the spleen revealed the coexistence of metastatic adenocarcinoma cells, together with low grade B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Splenic rupture as a consequence of malignant disease is discussed, together with a brief review of the literature.
