Rare tumor of the spleen - case report

Rita Meireles, Joana Cordeiro Cunha, Violeta Iglesias, Paula Baptista


Sclerosing angiomatoid nodular transformation was first described as a solitary angioma-like disease of the spleen by Martel et al. in 2004. It is a relatively new rare benign lesion. The authors present a clinical case of an asymptomatic, 48-year-old female. SANT has been an incidental finding in an abdominal ultrasound. Histological appearance and the immunohistochemical staining after spleen biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. As suggested in previously published articles, a splenectomy was performed for definitive treatment. This case contributes to the differential diagnosis of splenic tumors, its treatment and clinical impact.
