Splenic cysts are rare lesions in daily surgical practice. These are classified as true or pseudocyst based on presence or absence of epithelial lining. Most of these are asymptomatic until they regain significant size, at this time they are detected incidentally on ultrasonography or CT scan. We report a case of 45-year-old male with giant epithelial splenic cyst with about 2500 ml of brownish fluid was collected from the cyst. The specimen measured 180 mm ×160 mm ×120 mm and weighted 3500 g. Laparotomy with splenectomy has been the method of choice for giant epithelial cysts.

Keywords: Epithelial cyst, Splenic cyst, pseudocyst.
