Abstract

We report a case of a large epithelial cyst of the spleen of an 18 year old man who was treated with splenectomy. The management of splenic cysts has changed from total splenectomy to splenic preservation surgery. But complete splenectomy is reserved for cases in which cyst excision cannot be done.
