An accessory spleen is a small mass of splenic tissue, found apart from main body. An unexpectedly rare location of accessory spleen in phrenicocolic ligament was encountered during the course of preclinical cadaveric dissection programme. The accessory spleen also created an oval impression measuring 2.5x2 cm on the visceral surface of the spleen. Precise knowledge of such anatomical variants is relevant to Radiologists and Surgeons in their clinical practice.
