Brucellosis and splenic infarction: a case in pediatric age
Ruggeri C., Tulino V., Foti T., Carcione L., Vita D., Visalli C., Zimbaro G.
Splenic infarction has been associated with haematologic and tromboembolic disorders and, more rarely, with infectious diseases. A case of splenic infartion during an attack of brucellosis is reported. Symptoms included persistent left upper quadrant pain and fever. An abdomen scan confirmed the presence of a triangular area of hypodensity in the spleen. Serum and culture exams confirmed the diagnosis of brucellosis. The patient recovered once a course of antibiotic therapy was completed, after 2 and half months.
