Abstract

Epidermoid cyst of the spleen is the rarest benign nonparasitic cyst of the spleen. We describe such a case and show how it may be evaluated noninvasively with a combination of imaging modalities. Additionally, by using these modalities in the clinical setting of a young woman with vague abdominal complaints, the diagnosis can be strongly suggested preoperatively.
