Abstract

2 women with ectopic spleen are described. Because of the broad spectrum of clinical presentations, a high index of suspicion is needed to reach a correct diagnosis before the appearance of complications, which may be fatal. Diagnosis is usually possible by noninvasive means. Because of the high incidence of complications, splenectomy is recommended, even in asymptomatic cases.
