ABSTRACT

Splenic lymphangiomas are rare tumors seen most commonly in children. However very rarely, they may also present as symptomatic multi cystic splenic lesions in adults also. Hence a high index of suspicion is needed to diagnose and treat these lesions when symptomatic and to prevent complications like rupture and infection. Accurate radiological diagnosis of splenic lymphangioma is difficult and histopathology with newer Immunohistochemistry markers like D240 is useful to diagnose splenic lymphangioma. We wish to present this interesting case of symptomatic splenic lymphangioma in a middle aged female patient.

Keywords: D240, Multi cystic spleen, Splenectomy, Splenic lymphangioma
