We present a case of a 46-year-old man who underwent partial splenectomy operation for splenic mass. Splenic mass was found during routine examination. Definitive diagnosis of this lesion couldn’t be made before operation. Intraoperative frozen section pathological examination revealed diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor of the spleen. Partial splenectomy operation was performed. Postoperative course was uneventful. Inflammatory pseudotumor is a benign, reactive, and inflammatory process. Preservation of the spleen is purposed for benign lesions to have a better immunological outcome. In conclusion, partial splenectomy operation can be considered as a suitable method of surgical treatment.

Key words: Pseudotumor, spleen, splenectomy
