Abstract: We report an epithelioid angiosarcoma involving the splenic capsule. This neoplasm developed because of a gauze sponge, retained for 38 years following left-sided nephrectomy. Clinical, radiological, and histological features of this angiosarcoma add to the validity of the concept of inert foreign body tumorigenesis in humans.
