Abstract: Splenosis is a common condition found in a case that has a history of splenic trauma or splenectomy. It is usually a non-significant condition in clinical practice. However, splenosis can give rise to some complications including gastrointestinal hemorrhage as in the present case. The authors report here a case of gastric splenosis presenting with active upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage that was eventually managed with surgical resection, and the literature regarding splenosis was reviewed.
