10 Possible Causes for Splenic Friction Rub

  • Splenic Infarction

    Osler taught that splenic infarction presents with left upper abdominal quadrant pain, tenderness and swelling accompanied by a peritoneal friction rub.[] Splenic infarction is classically associated with bacterial endocarditis and sickle cell disease. To describe the contemporary experience of splenic infarction.[]

  • Splenic Abscess

    Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serotype Newport is a pathogen of growing importance because of its epidemic spread in dairy cattle and increasing rate of antimicrobial resistance. Human infections, however, are rare. We report a case of a splenic abscess in a young traveler returning from East Africa.[]

  • Hypersplenism

    Left upper quadrant abdominal pain associated with splenic friction rubs indicates splenic infraction, a common concomitant of marked splenomegaly. 2.[]

  • Typhus

    Queensland tick typhus (QTT), caused by Rickettsia australis, is usually a relatively mild illness but can occasionally be severe. We describe three cases of probable QTT with unusual clinical features, namely splenic infarction, fulminant myopericarditis and severe leukocytoclastic vasculitis. QTT may present with[…][]

  • Splenic Hematoma

    Splenic hematomas are infrequent complications of acute pancreatitis. In some cases, local factors that may play a role in the pathogenesis of the hematoma (thrombosis of the splenic artery or veins, intrasplenic pseudocysts, perisplenic adhesions, enzymatic digestion) are found. In the absence of local factors, the[…][]

  • Splenic Injury

    In patients with blunt splenic injury (BSI), patient selection, angiography, and embolization have contributed to low nonoperative management (NOM) failure rates. Despite these advances, some patients will fail NOM. We noted that a significant proportion of NOM failures had subcapsular hematomas (SCHs) identified on[…][]

  • Splenic Subcapsular Hematoma

    A delayed splenic hemorrhage from a subcapsular hematoma occurred in association with pregnancy. That rare complication carries a high mortality rate, is rarely diagnosed preoperatively and is correctly diagnosed only 20% of the time. The clinical setting and a high index of suspicion led us to investigate for the[…][]

  • Rare Form of Salmonellosis

    This paper describes a rare delusional disorder, the Fregoli syndrome, in a 17 year old girl who suffered from typhoid psychosis as seen at the Psychiatric Unit of the Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos.[]

  • Splenic Rupture

    Splenic ectopic pregnancy refers to the implantation of the oosperm in the spleen. If not diagnosed early, the results of this phenomenon would almost certainly be splenic rupture, which is equivalent to the spontaneous rupture of the spleen. If the patient has no history of trauma, it is difficult to diagnose this[…][]

  • Phlebitis of the Chest Wall

    There may be a friction rub resembling that of pleurisy.[] […] and commonly due to splenic infarction.[] EBM – Chest Pain Version: 2a (draft) MED/S2/CMEP 0053 (e) Page 19 Medical Services 6.4 Splenic Pain Pain arising from the capsule of the spleen is related to respiration[]
