Splenic hamartoma is an extremely exceptional, benign neoplasm arising from splenic parenchyma. Splenic hamartoma is additionally designated as splenoma, splenoadenoma or nodular hyperplasia of spleen. Besides, the contemporary sclerosing angiomatoid nodular transformation (SANT) of spleen manifests as a non neoplastic, vascular lesion and may be contemplated as a fibrosing variant of splenic hamartoma. Commonly congenital, splenic hamartoma is constituted of an aberrant admixture of normal splenic tissue. The preponderantly nodular lesion of variable magnitude is derived from cells layering the splenic sinuses. Splenic hamartoma represents with clonal chromosomal anomalies. Splenic hamartoma demonstrates an equivalent gender predilection.
