Abstract

Splenosis is the heterotopic autotransplantation of splenic tissue that usually follows traumatic splenectomy. The clinical significance of these splenic implants and the need for surgical removal is debatable. A case of a 35 year old woman, with post-traumatic splenectomy presenting with low abdominal pain and pelvic mass is reported. Laparoscopic removal of the pelvic splenic implants dispelled all complaints.
