Abstract
Wandering spleen is a rare but potentially clinically significant entity, and may be a cause for a patient presenting with acute abdomen. Because wandering spleen may present with non-specific symptoms and presentation, it can be a difficult diagnosis to make clinically. This paper describes a case report of the use of dynamic Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in a young woman to confirm the diagnosis of wandering spleen pre-operatively. The patient underwent a splenopexy and a post-operative MRI confirmed the successful surgical fixation of the patient`s spleen.
