Abstract A rare disease that can mimic acute appendicitis is infarction of accessory spleen. It may occur in children and is difficult to diagnose preoperatively. Greater awareness of this entity may show not only that it is associated with other intraabdominal anomalies but also that it is more common in the tropics than elsewhere. Two cases are reported.
