Splenic metastasis is extremely rare and are usually found in conjunction with metastasis of other organs. In addition, late recurrence even after 10 years of operation is very unusual. The most common sources of splenic metastasis are lung, colonrectal, melanoma, breast and ovarian carcinoma. We present a case of 67 year old woman who was admitted to our department with a solitary splenic metastases after hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for ovaric carcinoma 10 years ago. In conclusion, solitary splenic metastasis are very rare and the incidence of the reported cases in the medical literature is increasing. The treatment of choice is laparoscopic splenectomy that must be followed by chemotherapy in order to prevent the development of other possible micrometastases.
