Management of splenic injuries in children has evolved over the past two decades. Splenectomies or splenorrhaphias are now performed infrequently, with the majority of hemodynamically stable children with splenic injuries managed nonoperatively. This article reviews the imaging features of acute splenic injuries in children as well as the appearance of healing splenic injuries. Follow-up evaluation and outcomes in children with splenic injuries also are addressed.
