Fine needle aspiration cytology was used to study chest wall nodules in a patient who presented with fever, cough, pleuritic chest pain and cytomegalovirus infection and who had a previous history of abdominal trauma. The finding of splenic red pulp and white pulp in the aspirate, combined with the results of a radionucleotide liver-spleen scan, led to a diagnosis of thoracic splenosis, a relatively rare condition. Splenosis is thought to result from transplantation of splenic tissue after trauma and may provide some added protection against certain infectious conditions, both of which were present in this case.
