Hypersplenism is a clinical disorder characterized by splenic enlargement and overactivity adversely affecting a patient's hematological profile.1 Splenectomy is associated with numerous intraoperative and postoperative challenges to an anesthesiologist. A 60-year-old woman presented with pain in the abdomen and fever with physical findings of pallor, icteric sclera, and splenomegaly. She was planned for therapeutic splenectomy under general anesthesia. We present a case report of a successfully managed case of hypersplenism for splenectomy.
