Abstract

The authors describe a 46-year-old man with isolated splenic vein thrombosis (SVT) that developed after concrete drilling, which caused significant compression and vibration of the abdominal wall. Methyltetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) deficiency-related hyperhomocysteinemia, which was subsequently diagnosed, predisposed him to this event. To the best of the knowledge of authors, this is the first report of isolated splenic vein thrombosis caused by compression and vibration of the abdomen. Relevant aspects of isolated post-traumatic splenic vein thrombosis in this context are discussed.
