Inflammatory Pseudotumor of the Spleen: Review of clinical presentation and diagnostic methods

Free full text article: Inflammatory Pseudotumor of the Spleen: Review of clinical presentation and diagnostic methods

Abstract
We describe a 91-year-old woman with a clinical history of invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast diagnosed in 1991 who was admitted because of dizziness, poor appetite, and some swelling and tenderness over her cheeks. The patient`s initial work up revealed a 5-cm well-demarcated hypodense solid lesion in her spleen with abnormally intense uptake on PET/CT scan raising suspicion for malignancy i.e. breast metastasis versus lymphoma. Further review demonstrated the presence of this splenic lesion, though slightly smaller, on a CT scan from ten years earlier (2000). An ultrasonographic guided core needle splenic biopsy was performed and the pathology result revealed histological findings compatible with inflammatory pseudotumor of the spleen. As a result, unnecessary splenectomy was avoided.
