Abstract

Apixaban is a direct oral anticoagulant that works by inhibiting factor Xa. It has been associated with adverse bleeding outcomes including atraumatic splenic rupture. We present the case of an 86-year-old man who presented with features of left upper abdominal pain and hemorrhagic shock found to have atraumatic splenic rupture and hemoperitoneum on imaging.
