Splenic Angioma with Littoral Cells: What Diagnostic Reasoning? (About A Case)
Keywords:Littoral cell angioma, surgical specimen, ultrasound.
Littoral cell angioma is a very rare benign splenic lesion that develops from the red pulp of the spleen. It is characterized by the absence of characteristic clinical or biological signs. Imaging can evoke the diagnosis and eliminate a large number of differential diagnoses. Confirmation of the type of lesion is always histological. We report the case of a 43-year-old woman, presenting a chronic gene in the left hypochondrium without any other associated clinical or biological sign. Littoral angioma was among the diagnoses evoked in front of the splenic mass objectified on ultrasound and abdominal CT. The diagnosis was confirmed by histological and immunohistochemical study of the surgical specimen.
