Abstract

Wandering spleen is a rare entity which may present with symptoms suggestive of other, more common abdominal processes. Torsion of the long pedicle may occur causing abdominal pain. This article describes a case of wandering spleen diagnosed by computed tomography (CT). Liver spleen scintigraphy and sonography supported this diagnosis and suggested torsion. To our knowledge this is only the second case of this entity in which color flow and duplex Doppler findings have been reported.
