Abstract
A37-year-old female presented with Proteus syndrome and was found to have an asymptomatic enlarged spleen. Pathology confirmed splenic lymphangiomatosis. Proteus syndrome is a rare congenital disorder. It was named after the Greek god Proteus, meaning ?The Polymorphous?, for he could avoid capture by altering his shape. It can manifest usually as progressive skeletal abnormalities including asymmetric overgrowth, macrodactyly, scoliosis, and limb length discrepancy followed by soft tissue anomalies namely fatty, muscular, lymphatic and vascular malformations. Visceral malformations are rare including splenomegaly. In this case report, we highlight the rare association of this syndrome with lymphangiomatosis in the Middle- Eastern population.
