Case Description: Generally, removing spleen cysts by surgery is the only curative procedure. Laparoscopic surgery is a therapeutic method that can be used for removing of spleen cysts even if they have giant size. The patient was a 15 year old female referred to Sarem hospital with pain complaint. Primary investigations were indicative of a case with no history of trauma, infection, food or drug allergy. Laboratory results including urea, creatinine, Na+, K+, platelet and hemoglobin levels were normal. A mass in left part was suspected in abdominal observation, so sonography was ordered. The ultrasound study showed an abdominal mass in 140x162x116 mm dimentions and no other abnormal findings were detected. Presence of spleen cyst was confirmed by MRI, then the cyst was removed by laparoscopic surgery.
Conclusion: Spleen cyst is rare so that only in individuals with pain complaint or abnormal bleeding it can be detected. Laparoscopy is an effective, low-risk procedure for removing spleen cysts.
