The most common primary tumours of the spleen are benign and originate from the vascular endothelium. Haemangioma is the most common primary benign neoplasm of spleen and usually represents as a small ,localized tumour. Cavernous haemangioma is a rare disorder of the spleen with fewer than 100 cases reported in literature This condition may occur together with haemangiomatosis of the liver or it may occur as a manifestation of systemic angiomatosis, or less commonly, is confined to the spleen. We present a patient with moderate splenomegaly caused by splenic haemangiomatosis. The patient had no clinical disorders resulting from the splenic vascular tumour.
