Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The spleen was the source of hemorrhage in a 27-yr-old woman, known to be 6 wk pregnant when she presented in acute shock for intra-abdominal bleeding requiring immediate resuscitation and emergency laparotomy. Microscopic examination of the splenectomy specimen demonstrated a primary pregnancy implanted within the subcapsular splenic parenchyma.
