Splenic abscess is a potential complication of many disease entities which involve infections. Diagnostics are based on imaging studies. Treatment involves splenectomy and antibiotic therapy. In the case the abscess is limited, and particularly in young patients, percutaneous abscess drainage may be performed. This paper presents a case of a 66-year old female patient following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) complicated with sternum infection and cholecystectomy due to gallbladder abscess complicated with surgical site infection, who underwent long-term treatment in the ICU due to respiratory failure and persistent septic condition. Splenic abscess is a rare complication of abdominal cavity diseases and systemic infections.
