Torsion of a wandering spleen is rare, usually presenting as an acute abdomen and commonly misdiagnosed. In our case, a 14-year-old girl was diagnosed preoperatively as having a twisted hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. On laparotomy, an infarcted spleen that was twisted on its pedicle was found in the lower abdomen. The patient recovered uneventfully. The clinical spectrum of wandering spleen is discussed briefly.
