Splenic hamartoma is a benign vascular proliferative lesion. It is generally found incidentally during imaging tests performed for other reasons or at autopsy. Most commonly splenic hamartoma is a solitary or multiple, round, well-circumscribed, unencapsulated, and dark red nodule compressing the adjacent normal parenchyma. Splenic hamartoma usually re-mains asymptomatic, but the presence of the clinical symptoms occurs from mass effect if they grow larger. The most important issue is a differential diagnosis between benign and malignant mass. We report a case splenic hamartoma imaging, which was revealed at male patient of 40 years old.
