A rare splenic dermoid cyst in a 12-year-old boy is reported here in. The patient was referred to us with the chief complaint of left upper abdominal swelling for a week which was non tender. The lesion was demonstrated by ultrasonography and computed tomography to be a cystic lesion containing serous fluid. A splenectomy was performed. Histopathological findings demonstrated the cyst to be a dermoid cyst of the spleen. To avoid the risk of infection following splenectomy, polyvalent pneumococcus and meningococcus and hemophilus influengae vaccine was administered. The patient recovered uneventfully.
