Abstract

A case of haemorrhagic pleural effusion secondary to inflammatory pseudotumor of spleen in a 47-year-old woman is reported. Clinical presentation was suggestive of malignant aetiology and the diagnosis was possible only with histological examination of resected spleen. At 36 months of follow-up after splenectomy, patient remained well and free from recurrence of pleural effusion. To our knowledge, no similar case has been reported so far.
