Özet

We report on two girls with large epidermoid splenic cysts. They presented with abdominal pain, fever, and non-bilious vomiting. In both cases the cyst was diagnosed by means of computer tomography and ultrasonography. One of the patients was successfully treated with partial splenectomy. In the other case percutaneous drainage was initially carried out, but this treatment was insufficient. Splenectomy was then performed.
