Description of Specimen
Specimen consists of a portion of the spleen sectioned transversely. The splenic capsule is slightly thickened and multiple areas of pale tumour are seen throughout the splenic substance.

Microscopic examination showed this tumour to be an angiosarcoma which had replaced the majority of splenic pulp.
