A rare case of wandering spleen herniating through a defect in transverse mesocolon, which was managed electively by splenopexy using polyglycolic acid mesh is reported. An enlarged wandering spleen is at constant risk of trauma, torsion and infarction. Internal herniation seems to increase the above risks. Early recognition and elective splenopexy should be the treatment of choice.
