Splenic peliosis is exceptionally rare, but has been reported in a few case reports. We present a video of a patient with a history of pulmonary nodules (positive for Mycobacterium avium complex), who had a splenic mass discovered incidentally on a chest CT scan. The mass enlarged on serial imaging. The workup and management options are discussed, with video documentation of our surgical approach. We show the various steps of laparoscopic partial splenectomy. Pathology diagnosed splenic peliosis. A discussion of splenic peliosis and it’s pathophysiology is discussed.
