&ndps;&ndps;A 41-year-old lady, presented with complaints of acute onset lower abdominal pain and vomiting. On clinical examination, a tender mass in the hypogastric region was palpable. Pelvic examination revealed the same mass felt anterior and through one of the fornices, however, there was no cervical motion tenderness. Ultrasonography revealed a pelvic mass. The provisional diagnosis of torsion of adnexal mass was made. Ultrasonogram also revealed an absent spleen in left hypochondrium, which was ignored at that time. Emergency laparotomy was done which revealed a normal uterus and bilateral ovaries. However, a congested spleen was found in the pelvic area with abnormally elongated and twisted pedicle. A total splenectomy was performed in view of infarction of the torted spleen. The patient was discharged uneventfully on the fifth postoperative day with triple vaccination. This case describes a rare presentation of torsion of a wandering spleen being misdiagnosed as torsion of adnexal mass.
