Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Wandering spleen is a rare occurrence. Torsion of the splenic pedicle is the major life-threatening complication of this entity. Preoperative diagnosis is based on radiological investigation. We report two consecutive cases, one adult and one child, in whom torsion in a wandering spleen was diagnosed based on a typical whirled appearance of the splenic vessels on computed tomography. We present a review of computed tomographic appearance of splenic torsion, and emphasize the "whirled appearance" as a specific sign for splenic torsion in wandering spleen.
