Abstract: We report a case of torsion of a wandering spleen in an 18-year-old male patient who presented with acute abdominal pain and left lower quadrant mass. The patient was initially misdiagnosed at another institution. The patient came to our hospital for further investigation. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound was performed and showed a solid hypoechoic avascular mass, which was all that remained of the spleen, located under the left kidney. Based on the ultrasound findings, CT scan and MRI of the abdomen were performed to confirm the suspicion of torsion of a wandering spleen. To the best of our knowledge, there are no case reports describing the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound for diagnosing torsion of a wandering spleen.
