Splenosis is the autotransposition of splenic tissue and is rarely encountered by the gynecologist. Most patients with splenosis are asymptomatic but may present with gynecologic symptoms. There are few reports in the gynecologic literature describing the management of pelvic splenosis. This paper reports the first case of laparoscopic management of pelvic splenosis.
