Abstract


Hemangioma of spleen is the most common benign tumors of the spleen but it is still rare disease. These tumors are asymptomatic found incidentally at autopsy or during evaluation of other disorders. They may be single, multiple, or involving the entire organ. Symptoms may be present when lesion increase in size sufficient to compress adjacent structures or grows large enough to rupture spontaneously. Treatment of choice is often splenectomy for symptomatic patients. Here we report a case of 39 year old male patient came with complaints of painful lump in left hypochondriac region since 2 months. He was investigated & diagnosed to have splenic hemangioma which was confirmed as splenic hemangioma with infarcts on histopathology.
