  • Symptomatic pelvic Accessory Spleen
    American journal of surgery, 2007
    Co-Authors: Robert A. Cowles, Eric L. Lazar
    Abstract:

    Accessory Spleens are found most commonly at the splenic hilum, however, they rarely are symptomatic. An 18-year-old man presented with lower abdominal pain. Cross-sectional imaging studies with 3-dimensional reconstruction suggested the presence of a mass that was associated with the Spleen. A nuclear medicine radioisotope scan confirmed that the mass was a pelvic Accessory Spleen. Laparoscopic excision was performed with excellent results. This Accessory Spleen was unusual in its size and location. Accessory Spleens should be removed if symptomatic or if they are identified at splenectomy for hematologic disease.

  • Accessory Spleen masquerading as a pancreatic neoplasm
    American journal of surgery, 2009
    Co-Authors: Theresa Schwartz, Barbara B. Sterkel, Goswin Y. Meyer-rochow, Andrew J. Gifford, Jaswinder S. Samara, Mark Sywak, Frank E. Johnson
    Abstract:

    A patient with a pancreatic mass noted on a computed tomography scan was suspected of having a nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasm. The eventual diagnosis of intrapancreatic Accessory Spleen was made by noninvasive means, thus avoiding unnecessary surgery.

  • unusual presentation of right side Accessory Spleen mimicking a retroperitoneal tumor
    International Journal of Urology, 2008
    Co-Authors: Chang M Im, Sang H Oh, Dong D Kwon, Kwangsung Park
    Abstract:

    Abstract:  An unusual case of right-side retroperitoneal Accessory Spleen is presented. A 68-year-old man visited our hospital for the management of incidentally detected retroperitoneal mass. The computed tomography scan of the abdomen revealed the presence of a retroperitoneal tumor (4.0 × 3.8 cm) at the right suprarenal space. Laparoscopic excision was carried out with excellent results. On histological examination, the tumor exhibited a structure typical of splenic tissue. This Accessory Spleen was unusual in its size and location. Though it existed at the right side, surgeons should be aware of the possible existence of Accessory Spleens for the differential diagnosis of retroperitoneal tumors.
