Özet

Splenosis has been serious etiologic reason in the recurrence of benign hematologic diseases after elective open or laparoscopic splenectomy. Although, the incidince of splenosis in patients splenectomized for trauma is high, as long as they are asymptomatic, they do not require surgical treatment. Herein, we report a case of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura recurrence due to splenosis 5 years after the initial laparoscopic splenectomy. Laparoscopic treatment of splenosis was performed successfully.
