Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Rupture of a splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) during pregnancy is a rare and severe condition. A 35-year-old woman at 34 weeks' gestation came to our observation for acute abdominal pain. After being diagnosed with intra-pancreatic SAA rupture, she was delivered of a live fetus by cesarean section. This is a rare case with both fetal and maternal survival.
