Abstract

The Authors describe a clinical case in which a subcapsular hematoma of the spleen complicates chronic relapsing pancreatitis. A pathogenetic mechanism is postulated that explains the subacute insorgence of the liquid collection with the diffusion of proteolytic enzymes between the splenic capsule and parenchyma. The Authors advise a radical therapy consisting of exeresis of the cystic formation, splenectomy, and caudal pancreatectomy.
