    Splenic rupture, no matter what the cause is, is associated with significant mortality. It can present either acutely after trauma, or days to weeks later, a situation known as ‘’delayed splenic rupture (DSR)’’. On the other hand, splenic rupture without trauma history occurs mainly in a pathologically altered spleen, a rare situation called atraumatic splenic rupture (ASR). Cases of ASR of normal spleen have been reported in literature with various cause as far as trauma is concerned.
