Primary Haemangioendothelioma (HE) of spleen is a rare vascular tumour. These tumours have intermediate biologic behaviour between haemangioma and angiosarcoma. So far, few cases have been reported in literature and most of them are in adults or adolescents. Here the present authors report a 6-month-old infant who presented with mass per abdomen. Contrast Enhanced Computerised Tomography (CECT) abdomen revealed a splenic mass which was treated by partial splenectomy. Histopathology confirmed it to be haemangioendothelioma of spleen.
