A case of cavernous hemangioma of the spleen causing hypersplenism and diagnosed pre-operatively is described. Selective celiac angiography is considered useful as a diagnostic method by demonstrating large irregular vascular channels with a haphazard arrangement and slow flow. The differential diagnosis between cavernous hemangioma and hamartoma of spleen is discussed.
