Splenic infarction without splenic vessel thrombosis is an infrequent presentation in clinical practice. The case discussed here is a 45-year-old male with a history of alcohol abuse, who presented to the hospital with pain abdomen epicentered in the left upper quadrant. On evaluation, the patient was found to be having portal hypertension complicated with alcoholic hepatitis, acute necrotizing pancreatitis, gastric, and paraesophageal varices. The presence of splenic infarction without concomitant splenic vessel thrombosis in this patient merits a discussion of relevant investigations and their findings thereof.
