ABSTRACT: Congenital non-parasitic splenic cysts are rare. Differentiation of true cysts with epithelial lining of the cyst wall from pseudocysts without such lining is important from the management point of view. True cysts are resistant to non surgical methods of treatment like aspiration or sclerosis. Presented is the case of a 16 year old boy with an epidermoid cyst of the spleen which failed to respond to repeated aspirations and recurred following laparoscopic deroofing. This was effectively managed with surgical near total excision and omentopexy of the residual cavity.
