La fusion splénogonadique est une anomalie congénitale rare. Le diagnostic préopératoire est difficile et pourrait s’appuyer sur la scintigraphie au technétium 99m. Dans la plupart des cas, le nodule splénique peut être séparé facilement de la gonade ou des éléments du cordon spermatique. En cas de doute, un examen histologique extemporané peut être utile pour éviter une orchidectomie abusive. Nous rapportons l’observation d’un garçon de 4 ans, chez qui une masse inguinale gauche a conduit à une exploration chirurgicale et a permis de porter le diagnostic histologique de fusion splénogonadique.

We report the case of a 4-year-old child in whom an inguinal mass indicated surgical exploration, which documented the histological diagnosis of splenogonadal fusion.
