The authors describe a case of sclerosing angiomatoid nodular transformation (SANT) of the spleen treated at the 2nd Department of Surgery, Jagiellonian University, Medical College. The patient was a 23-year-old woman. Clinically she presented with 2-year history of recurrent mild fever, diffuse joint pain, abdominal discomfort and iron deficiency anaemia of chronic disease. The laboratory tests revealed a non-characteristic chronic inflammatory response. A splenic solid lesion 9 cm in diameter was found on abdominal computed tomography. The patient underwent uneventful laparoscopic resection of the upper half of the splenic parenchyma. The resected tumour showed characteristic histological and immunophenotypical findings of SANT as previously described in the literature. In long-term follow-up, improvement of preoperative symptoms and abnormalities in the blood tests was documented.
