Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is a common syndrome of dengue viral infection but complications such as sub-capsular splenic hematoma leading to capsular rupture in dengue are rare. We report a case of a young male who presented with fever, breathlessness, and acute abdomen. His CT of the abdomen revealed subcapsular splenic hematoma measuring 16.7 cm × 13.0 cm × 11 cm. His laboratory parameters were suggestive of anemia, thrombocytopenia, acute kidney injury, coagulopathy, and hepatopathy because of which instead of splenectomy, splenic artery embolization with ultrasound-guided splenic hemorrhage drainage was performed for his management as his clinical condition deteriorated. This case report sensitizes newer modalities of treatment of subcapsular splenic hematoma with splenic arterial embolization.
