An inflammatory pseudotumor of the spleen is a rare benign disease with unknown etiology which requires a differentiation from the lymphoproliferative lesion of the spleen. A clinical presentation, preoperative imaging does not help to establish the diagnosis or rule out malignant potential, so the only diagnostic and therapeutic option is splenectomy along with histopathological and immunohistochemical analysis. We report a case with review of the literature.
