Wandering spleen is a term applied to the condition in which a long pedicle allows the spleen to lie in an abnormal location. The condition is usually symptomless but mild discomfort or severe abdominal pain may occur with torsion of the pedicle and with splenic congestion. There may be a masss palpable in the pelvic cavity or midabdomen which may be misdiagnosed as tumor. Diagnosis of the condition may be made by ultrasonography and splenic scan. We experienced a case in which an 11 year old female patient complaining of abdominal pain and palpable abdominal mass was evaluated and diagnosed with wandering spleen. Thus, we present the case together with the appropriate literature.
