Splenic rupture is commonly encountered after a history of blunt abdominal trauma, and the patient with this diagnosis underwent emergency laparotomy splenectomy to reduce the risk of hemorrhagic shock. In this report, we describe non-traumatic splenic rupture with previously chronic myelo-monocytic leukemia. We reported a 64-year-old female patient who suffered from left upper abdominal pain and general weakness for three days. This patient subsequently had hemorrhagic shock and received transarterial embolization intervention.
