OBJECTIVE. Incidental splenic lesions, often found on CT images of the abdomen, may often be ignored or mischaracterized. Calcified splenic lesions are often presumed to be granulomas; however, understanding the broader differential diagnostic considerations can be useful. CONCLUSION. Determining the cause of splenic lesions is essential to guide appropriate management; the pattern of calcification together with other imaging and clinical findings can aid with differentiation.
