Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Wandering spleen is rare and is associated with a high incidence of splenic torsion and infarction. Presenting symptoms range from an asymptomatic, incidentally palpated abdominal mass to an acutely ill patient. Because wandering spleen is uncommon in the pediatric population, a heightened awareness of the condition is required for accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. We present a case of a 4-year-old girl who presented with acute abdomen and was surgically confirmed to have a wandering spleen with torsion and complete infarction.
