A young lady was admitted for acute pain in the left hypochondrium. She has no significant past medical history, and no trauma. Imaging studies demonstrated the presence of a heterogeneous splenic cyst of 17cm in diameter. The diagnosis of hemorrhagic cyst with potential infection was established and the patient was scheduled for a laparoscopic splenectomy.
