Intrathoracic splenosis is a rare condition that results after rupture of the spleen or diaphragmatic injury. We present herein a case of intrathoracic splenosis of a 48-years-old woman whom splenectomy had been performed 5 years ago after a traffic accident. The patient was operated on with suspicion of malignancy and total resection of the lesion was performed with video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). Histopathologic examination confirmed the splenosis diagnosis. Thoracic splenosis should be suspected for the patients with thoracic lesions whom had medical history of thoracoabdominal injury including splenectomy or diaphragmatic injury.

Keywords: Trauma, Chest, Video-assisted thoracic surgery.

İntratorasik splenozis, dalak rüptürü veya diyafragma hasarı sonrasında meydana gelebilen nadir bir durumdur. Bu olgu sunumunda, beş yıl önce trafik kazası nedeniyle splenektomi uygulanmış olan 48 yaşındaki kadın hastada gelişen intratorasik splenozis vakasını sunuyoruz. Hastaya sol hemitoraksta kitle tanısıyla, malignite şüphesiyle video yardımlı toraks cerrahisi (VATS) uygulandı ve sol hemitorakstaki lezyon eksize edildi. Histopatolojık inceleme dalak dokusuyla uyumlu bulundu. Sonuç olarak, özgeçmişinde torakoabdominal travmaya bağlı ortaya çıkan diyafragma hasarı veya splenektomı hıkayesi bulunan olgularda intratorasik splenozis akılda tutulması gereken bır tanıdır.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Travma, Toraks, Video yardımlı toraks cerrahisi.
