We report a rare case of spontaneous rupture of splenic abscess in a patient who was on immuno-suppressants following renal transplant. She was incidentally found to have this rupture when an ultrasound abdomen was done to rule out hypersplenism. Diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion and early intervention produces good outcomes.
