Abstract

The nonparasitic primary splenic cysts are very rare clinical entity. In the past, splenectomy was the treatment of choice but with the recognition of the spleen’s important immunological function, spleen-preserving surgery is the preferred treatment modality. We hereby present a case of a large splenic mesothelial cyst and its treatment with preservation of the remaining splenic parenchyma. Our case shows that spleen-preserving surgery in treatment of the large splenic cysts is possible and safe procedure with maintenance of the splenic function.
