Peliosis is characterized by multiple blood-filled cyst-like cavities within the parenchyma of solid organs. It is a rare condition and mostly affects the liver. Splenic peliosis is even rarer, especially following solid organ transplantation with barely few cases reported in the literature. We describe a rare case of splenic peliosis complicated by spontaneous splenic rupture following deceased donor liver transplantation. Timely diagnosis and urgent re-exploration followed by splenectomy salvaged the patient.
