abdominal or pelvic drifting spleen is due to the abnormalities or the failure of its attachment to
the diaphragmatic cupola, more specifically the laxity of the suspensory ligaments that may be congenital
or secondary. Diagnosis is often incidental thanks especially to medical imaging. We report a new typical
case of wandering spleen. And our aim is to recall the difficulties of diagnostic of this rare pathological
entity and their surgical approach.
