Lymphangioma of the spleen is a rare neoplasm and approximately 100 cases have been reported in the world literature. This lesion may involve the spleen alone or may be a part of a syndrome of multivisceral involvement. The pathogenesis is unclear whether this is a true neoplasm of a developmental defect. We report a case of a 87-year-old woman with solitary splenic lymphangioma. The cut surface mass is not encapsulated and located at the subcapsular area in the mid portion of spleen. It is composed of variable sized cystic spaces containing myxoid tissue. Microscopic finding reveals dilated lymphatic spaces lined by endothelial cells and the content is proteinaceous eosinophilic fluid.
