Wandering spleen syndrome is a rare condition in which absence or laxity of splenic fixing elements predisposes to an unusual location in the abdomen and an increasing risk of twisting and infarction. Its etiology may be congenital or acquired and clinical presentation is variable. Diagnosis is based on clinical suspicion, laboratory and imaging. Surgery is the only definitive treatment for this pathology. We report the case of a 23 year old woman with a history of recurrent episodes of abdominal pain in the left upper quadrant since childhood...

INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis is a global public health concern, with 9.6 million affected individuals worldwide. Current screening and diagnostic regimes focus primarily on smear positivity, and hence, the rising numbers of Sputum negative and Extra-Pulmonary Tuberculosis has become a significant set-back to adequate diagnosis, disease notification and treatment, due to the large number of false negatives. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We hereby describe an intriguing presentation of tuberculosis - A 23 yr old lady with no comorbid illness, came to us with ten month history of on and off pyrexia, weakness and left hypochondriac pain...

Cancer of uterine cervix is one of the most common malignancies in women. Metastatic recurrence of cervical cancer in spleen is rare, mostly seen in autopsies. Splenic metastasis from cervical cancer in a living patient without disseminated metastases is rarer. Here, we present the case of a lady aged 46 years with cervical cancer-squamous cell carcinoma-who had undergone radical hysterectomy and postoperative 50 Gy of intensity modulated radiation therapy in 25 fractions and 50 mg of weekly cisplatin for 6 weeks...

Introduction Splenectomy in children is nowadays widely performed by laparoscopy, the major risk being operative hemorrhage. We hereby compare the results of two different techniques of vascular control. Materials and Methods We retrospectively reviewed all patients undergoing a laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) for hematologic disease at a single institution from 2004 to 2013. LS was performed by a lateral approach. The 10-mm optic port was placed in the umbilicus and two 5-mm working ports were placed in the left lower quadrant and in the right upper quadrant near the midline...

Splenosis is a very rare entity that often appears following a traumatic rupture of the spleen or after splenectomy and represents heterotopic transplantation of splenic tissue. The ovary is reported as an atypical and rare localization. We report a case of a middle-aged woman, which presented with a left adnexal mass. Transvaginal ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT) and high-field 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed the left adnexal mass. Laparoscopy was performed, and histological and immunohistochemical examination revealed that resected mass was splenic tissue...

We present a 7-year-old boy with recurrent thrombocytopenia after primary laparoscopic splenectomy for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). Imaging modalities (ultrasound, computed tomography scan, and scintigraphy) revealed two accessory spleens while the subsequent second laparoscopy revealed 11, which were successfully removed. The relevant medical literature is reviewed, and the value of laparoscopy for chronic ITP is highlighted.

We analyzed perioperative outcome of distal pancreatectomies with or without splenic preservation both in laparoscopic and open method to determine best approach. Retrospective data was collected from 1999 to 2013. We divided all distal pancreatectomies into four groups. Group 1-laparoscopic spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy (LSPDP). Group 2-laparoscopic splenectomy + distal pancreatectomy (LSDP). Group 3-open spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy. Group 4-open splenectomy + distal pancreatectomy. We recorded demographic data, intra and post operative complications, operative time, estimated blood loss, length of stay, pancreatic leak rate, and final pathology result...

BACKGROUND: Thalassaemia is a genetic disease of the haemoglobin protein in red blood cells. It is classified into thalassaemia minor, intermedia and major, depending on the severity of the disease and the genetic defect. Thalassaemia major and intermedia require frequent blood transfusions to compensate for the lack of well-functioning red blood cells, although this need is significantly less in thalassaemia intermedia.Damaged or defective red blood cells are normally eliminated in the spleen...

Splenic ectopic pregnancies are a rare cause of abdominal pain in reproductive-age women. A 21-year-old woman with worsening abdominal pain and a positive pregnancy test presented with hemoperitoneum and no intrauterine pregnancy on transvaginal ultrasound. After 2 nondiagnostic laparoscopies, a splenic pregnancy was diagnosed by computed tomography scan and abdominal ultrasound. Currently, diagnosis and treatment of splenic pregnancies involve exploratory surgery and splenectomy. We report the successful treatment of this splenic ectopic pregnancy with combined intramuscular plus ultrasound-guided percutaneous methotrexate injection, with preservation of the patient's spleen...

AIM: Isolated hepatic splenosis is a rare but possible condition in abdominal surgery. At radiological imaging liver splenosis mimics malignant or pathological condition of the liver; obtaining a certain diagnosis prior to surgery is difficult. For this reason, the patients undergo to unnecessary operation, with a laparotomy access. We report a case of suspicious liver mass removed laparoscopically and revealed as hepatic splenosis. CASE REPORT: A 31 years old man patient was admitted to our Institution because of upper chronic abdominal pain...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic splenectomy is considered the gold standard for resecting normal-to-moderately bigger spleens in benign conditions, and in addition could be tried for patients with malignant splenic disorders. However, the safety of laparoscopic splenectomy in patients with hypersplenism is not well-known. This study aimed to investigate the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic splenectomy for patients with hypersplenism secondary to liver cirrhosis by comparing with the open splenectomy...
