    Three cases of giant, nonparasitic splenic cysts in young patients are presented. The cysts were poorly-symptomatic and manifested with mild upper-abdominal pain and discrete change of abdominal contour. The diagnosis was made based on USG and abdominal CT. Upon operation, the cysts were successfully excised, sparing almost the whole spleen, using standard instruments: electric knife and LigaSure instrument. The postoperative course was uneventful in all cases. At the 4-6-months follow-up, all patients were in good shape and CT showed no signs of recurrence. The results of this case series show that giant splenic cysts may be relatively safely resected, sparing almost the whole spleen.
