Wandering spleen with torsion presenting as a rare case of acute abdomen
Wandering spleen is a rare clinical occurrence characterized by the absence of spleen in its normal anatomic place. Patients may present with acute abdomen, abdominal mass, and chronic abdominal pain. Prompt diagnosis and intervention are necessary. Here, we report a case of a woman who presented with acute abdominal pain secondary to a wandering spleen complicated by torsion of its vascular pedicle.
