Abstract

Lower pole splenectomy with preservation of residual splenic function was successfully performed in a 3-year-old boy with a symptomatic splenic hamartoma. Following resection, several of the patient's constitutional symptoms resolved. This is the first reported case of a splenic hamartoma treated by partial splenectomy.
