Abstract

A large cystic lymphangioma in a wandering spleen was discovered by chance in a young woman, 2 months after she delivered her first child. The clinical finding was that of a pelvic mass, which at CT was found to be a wandering spleen, containing multiple cystic lesions. The diagnosis of cystic lymphangioma was made at the pathological examination of the specimen after splenectomy. The association of cystic lymphangioma in a wandering spleen has not been reported previously.
