Joana Albuquerque, Ana Mónica, Ana Germano, Ana Tavares

Abstract


Splenic Epidermoid Cyst is a rare entity and the imaging methods play a major role in the diagnosis, although this can only be accomplished by the histological features. The authors report a case of splenic epidermoid cyst in a child of eleven years old, which presented with one month history of post-traumatic abdominal pain. They illustrate the imaging features on ultrasound, CT and MR with pathologic correlation. A review of imaging aspects in the characterization and diagnosis of this clinical entity is made.
