  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 61-year-old woman, suffering from epigastralgia, was diagnosed as having a splenic tumor, measuring ap-proximately 7cm in diameter on computed tomography (CT). Enhanced CT demonstrated a round mass lesion in the spleen with a little enhancement. Gallium scintigraphy showed a hot spot on the splenic tumor. In order to rule out the possibility of malignant tumor, such as malignant lymphoma, we performed hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery (HALS). Histologically this mass proved to be a splenic hamartoma.
