Sclerosing angiomatoid nodular transformation (SANT) is a rare, benign, proliferative vascular lesion that arises from the splenic red pulp. Most patients with SANT have no clinical symptoms and are discovered incidentally on imaging. There are no definitive radiological signs and a distinction from other splenic diseases, and malignant processes remain difficult. Confirmation of the diagnosis of SANT requires a histological and immunohistochemical evaluation of the resected spleen. Here, we report an unusual case of SANT of the spleen successfully treated with an elective laparoscopic splenectomy (LS). LS is a safe and effective method for diagnosis of SANT.
