Inflammatory Pseudotumor of Splenic Hilar Node Mimicking Gastric Submucosal Tumor

By Correspondence Sun, Kyo Song and Department Of Surgery


Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is an uncommon clinical condition characterized by proliferation of spindle cells, inflammatory cells, and small vessels. IPT has been reported in various anatomical sites, including the orbit, lung, liver, spleen, and so on. IPT of the lymph node is very rare. We recently experienced a 65-year-old woman diagnosed with IPT of the lymph node in the splenic hilar, or distal supra-pancreatic area, mimicking gastric submucosal tumor. The tumor was removed without event using the laparoscopic method. This lesion in the splenic hilum is extremely rare and has not been cited in the current literature. We describe such a rare case of IPT with a review of the literature. (J Korean Surg Soc 2010;78:199-202) Key Words: Inflammatory pseudotumor, Lymph node, Gastric submucosal tumo
