Splenic cysts are not so common in incidence. Only 800–850 cases have been reported till now in the literature. Splenic cysts can be further classified into parasitic and non-parasitic cysts. Non-parasitic cyst is further subdivided into true and false or pseudocyst. Pseudocysts are those who are lacking any epithelial lining. Splenic pseudocysts are usually a result of trauma, infection or infarction. We present a case of splenic pseudocyst that was diagnosed incidentally on routine check-up, and we managed this case with minimally invasive approach with complete preservation of spleen and only removal of pseudocyst. We used indocyanine green dye that helped us in complete delineation of splenic parenchyma and vascular structure adjacent to it. In our view, as in this study also, adopting a new technique that can be helpful in better treatment of the patient and if it can change the surgical outcome of the disease in favour of the patient, it should be encouraged.
