Wandering spleen is a rare condition. This condition is due to absence, laxity or underdevelopment of splenorenal, gastrosplenic and splenocolic ligaments that hold the spleen in its normal localisation. Clinic presentation may be asymptomatic or may be painful abdominal mass, intermittent abdominal pain or acute abdomen. In this report, a thirty-five year old female patient with torsion of a wandering spleen was presented with clinical and radiological findings.
