Splenosis is usually a sequel of splenic rupture from abdominal trauma but can be associated with elective splenectomy. Recurrence of the hematological disorder for which the patient underwent splenectomy may occur, and splenic nodules can be found anywhere in the thoracic or abdominal cavity, as well as subcutaneously. We are presenting intramural colonic splenosis, a large inoculum of the splenic tissue that has been found to have the capacity to maintain anemia and thrombocytopenia, in a child previously splenectomized because of a hematological problem.
