11 Possible Causes for Splenic Friction Rub

  • Splenic Infarction

    BACKGROUND: 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.[]

  • Splenic Abscess

    Abstract The case of a woman with splenic abscess due to Brucella is reported. There was no response with antibiotics and surgical treatment was required. On the basis of this case and the literature review we consider that surgical treatment must be considered in patients with splenic abscess due to Brucella[…][]

  • Typhus

    Typhus fevers are a group of diseases caused by bacteria that are spread to humans by fleas, lice, and chiggers. Typhus fevers include scrub typhus, murine typhus, and epidemic typhus. Chiggers spread scrub typhus, fleas spread murine typhus, and body lice spread epidemic typhus. The most common symptoms are[…][]

  • Splenic Hematoma

    Abstract This report describes a case of blunt abdominal trauma in which a deep congenital fissure in the superior border of the spleen led to the preoperative scintigraphic diagnosis of a splenic hematoma. The frequency of splenic notches of this magnitude is low but significant, hence anatomical variation should[…][]

  • Splenic Injury

    BACKGROUND: The incidence of splenectomy after trauma is institutionally dependent and varies from 18% to as much as 40%. This is important because variation in management influences splenic salvage. The aim of this study was to investigate whether differences exist between Dutch level 1 trauma centers with[…][]

  • Splenic Subcapsular Hematoma

    Abstract 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[…][]

  • Splenic Rupture

  • Hypersplenism

    Left upper quadrant abdominal pain associated with splenic friction rubs indicates splenic infraction, a common concomitant of marked splenomegaly. 2.[] Other significant findings include a splenic friction rub to detect an infarction of the spleen and the presence of bruits, heard over the splenic artery, which suggests congestion-induced[]

  • Chronic Congestive Splenomegaly

    Other helpful signs include a splenic friction rub that suggests splenic infarction and epigastric and splenic bruits that suggest congestive splenomegaly.[]

  • Polycythemia Vera

    […] infarction (often with a friction rub), or, particularly in women, the Budd-Chiari syndrome .[] Hyperviscosity predisposes to macrovascular thrombosis, resulting in stroke , deep venous thrombosis , myocardial infarction , retinal artery or retinal vein occlusion, splenic[]
