We review two different presentations of non-parasitic splenic cysts, both of which are post-traumatic in aetiology. The first case was of slower onset and was managed electively. The second case was of acute onset and was managed as an emergency. Non-parasitic splenic cysts are uncommon and the optimal management strategy for them is not well defined. Historically, treatment has been with open splenectomy; however, infection rates following this surgery have been high, making it an unattractive management option. Both cases were managed successfully with laparoscopic fenestration with no recurrence at subsequent follow-up.
