Splenic infarction occurs when parenchymal ischemia of the spleen is evoked by an occlusion of the arterial or venous circulation. The most common causes include infiltrative hematological disease and thromboembolic conditions, but a hypotensive splenic infarction may be a rare cause of splenic infarction. A 62-year-old female patient presented with a hypotensive splenic infarction after massive bleeding. CT showed geographic low-density lesions in the central part of the spleen on the tissue equilibrium phase of dynamic CT. Usually, a depressed scar occurs in the course of healing of a splenic infarction. However, in this case recovery of blood flow and regeneration of the infarcted spleen was seen during the follow-up CT scans. We report a case of hypotensive splenic infarction with a review of the literature.
