Abstract

Injuries to the spleen in combination with vascular injuries to the kidney are a rare finding and usually expected in polytraumatised patients. The case of a 17-year-old motorcyclist shows that excessive force is not always required but may also occur under circumstances where an extensive injury may not be expected.
