Abstract

Littoral cell angioma (LCA) is a rare primary vascular tumour of the spleen. LCA has been associated with autoimmune disorders and it is hypothesised that the underlying pathogenesis is immune dysregulation. We report a case of LCA in a patient with Myasthenia Gravis which has thus far not been reported in the literature.
