Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Epidermoid splenic cysts are very rare. Symptoms emerge because of enlargement, infection, haemorrhage or rupture. Although splenectomy is indicated for large cysts, minimally invasive and preservation procedures, such as partial splenectomy or total cystectomy with splenorrhaphy, have been increasingly used during the last decade. We report herein the case of a 16-year old female presented with left upper abdominal quadrant pain, fever and abdominal distention treated in our department.
