Hemangioma of the spleen: radiologic-pathologic correlation in ten cases

Hemangioma of the spleen: radiologic-pathologic correlation in ten cases

Radiology 162(1 Pt 1): 73-77

Ten cases of hemangioma of the spleen were reviewed. Plain abdominal radiographs and scintigrams are helpful in specifying the splenic location. Calcification, either central punctate or peripheral curvilinear, can be detected on radiographs or computed tomographic (CT) scans. The spectrum form solid to cystic change observed in the pathologic specimens is reflected in analogous patterns on CT scans and sonograms: predominantly solid mass; mass with cystic spaces. The angiographic findings are nonspecific. It is possible to suggest the diagnosis of hemangioma of the spleen when an asymptomatic patient presents with a discrete splenic mass, particularly if there is evidence of calcification and cystic change within the lesion.
