Laproscopic partial splenectomy is a safe, minimally invasive technique for the treatment of solitary space occupying lesion (SOL) in splenic pole. Sclerosing angiomatoid nodular transformation (SANT) of the spleen is a rare benign vascular lesion, first described in the literature under this name in 2004. We report a case of upper pole splenic SOL diagnosed as SANT on HPE successfully managed by Laparoscopic partial splenectomy for the first time at INHS Asvini. The patient presented with pain left hypochondrium of 02 year duration. Ultrasonography (USG) and Contrast enhanced Computerized tomography (CECT) abdomen revealed a splenic mass in upper pole. The laproscopic partial splenectomy has proved to be both diagnostic and therapeutic.
