Case 1

HISTORY

A middle aged man underwent chest CT and an incidental abnormality had been found in the spleen.

ULTRASOUND FINDINGS

There is a large cyst within the spleen which shows a single thick septation.

DISCUSSION

Splenic cysts can be true cysts or pseudocysts. In this case, investigation for hydatid disease and cysticercosis was negative, there was no past history of trauma (to suggest a post traumatic pseudocyst). The cause was uncertain.
