Splenic cysts. Observations about 3 cases

Caronia V., Gualandi O., Battistioli M., Marchese M., Tonetto F., Bonotto G.

Three cases of splenic cysts are reported: the first classified as epidermoid, an ancommon congenital anomaly that usually occurs as a paucisymptomatic abdominal mass, and the others as secondary cysts. Peculiar pathologic and clinical aspects of the splenic cysts are reported. The diagnosis may be established by CT scan and echography. Splenectomy is the treatment of choice; splenic salvage should be achieved when possible in pediatric or particular patients, for the high risks of post-splenectomy sepsis.
