Abstract: Splenic metastasis is rare and generally associated with disseminated disease, often seen in breast cancer, colorectal and ovarian carcinoma, and melanoma. Isolated metastasis to the spleen is rare, with only 93 cases from all sources having been reported up to 2007. Moreover, isolated splenic metastasis from primary lung cancer is extremely rare, with only 11 cases reported to date. We report a case of isolated splenic metastasis in a woman 8 months after lobectomy for an adenocarcinoma in the right lung completely resected. After 8 years of follow-up, the patient is still alive with no evidence of metastatic recurrence. (Ann Thorac Surg 2013;95:1432-4) (c) 2013 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons
