Splenic abscess is an uncommon but frequently fatal condition. Signs and symptoms are variable and do not always include left upper quadrant pain or tenderness. Unexplained thrombocytosis in a septic patient with persistent left pleural effusion is suggestive of splenic abscess. We report a case of splenic abscess with complicated multiple fistulas by Klebsiella pneumoniae which was successfully managed by antibiotic therapy, and percutaneous catheter drainage.
