PMID:  1601704     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors describe a patient who had a benign, secondary splenic cyst definitively diagnosed preoperatively by use of a computed tomography scan. Because it was not possible to distinguish between a primary and secondary nonparasitic cyst preoperatively, the treatment of choice was elective splenectomy. This procedure allows confirmation of the clinical diagnosis and involves low morbidity and mortality.
