Background. Cystic lesions of the spleen are not an uncommon pathology, however, until now clear criteria for the scope of surgical interventions are not clearly defined and depend on a number of anatomical and clinical features of this pathology, and laparoscopic resection is still a surgical challenge. Purpose. Preliminary analysis of the results of laparoscopic resection of spleen cysts, as well as the study of the current literature on the subject. Material and methods. This article presents a clinical case from the authors' personal experience with the diagnosis and treatment of a patient with a spleen cyst. Laparoscopic method was used in surgical treatment. In selecting it, a number of relevant medical literature was studied and analyzed. Results. As a result of a successful laparoscopic resection the patient managed to save such an important organ for homeostasis maintenance as the spleen. Postoperative complications were also avoided. Conclusions. Organ-preserving and minimally invasive interventions should remain the priority at the current stage of surgery development. In the treatment of such pathology as spleen cysts, planned approach is preferable, which allows for maximum preoperative diagnosis. It should take into account the etiology and localization of the cyst, as well as the peculiarities of blood supply to the spleen in a particular patient.
