Splenic cysts are are classified into true and false cysts based on presence or absence of epithelial layer.
Parasitic and non parasitic splenic cyst accounts for 0.5-4.3 % and 0.07 % respectively.
Because of similar presentations , it is difficult to differentiate between parasitic and non parasitic splenic cysts.
CT scan remains the investigation of choice.
Splenic cyst is a rare entity , precluding any emergent standard management strategy.
Since 1980 Treatment has progressed from splenectomy to spleen conserving techniques.Because of immunogenic functions of spleen, splenic conservation is preferable because of high incidence of overwhelming post splenectomy infection and mortality associated with it.
This presentation emphasises on laparoscopic indications and techniques of spleen preservation in management of splenic cysts.
