The study presented two cases of spontaneous rupture of the spleen. Both patients were treated at the Department of General, Oncological, and Endocrinological Surgery. The first patient underwent splenectomy. The postoperative course was uneventful. The second patient was subject to pharmacological treatment because of non-acceptance to surgical intervention. The patient died during the following hospitalization. Both patients received oral anticoagulants, due to atrial fibrillation and an implanted heart valve. History of previous trauma was absent. The study presented a detailed description of the clinical course of splenic rupture.
