The report of the occurrence of accessory spleen in domestic animals is rare in the literatures. We report a case of an
accessory spleen in Baladi goat. Accessory spleen was present near the cranial groove of the rumen on the ventral ruminal sac.
It was supplied by accessory splenic artery which originated from the splenic artery after giving off the epiploic branch.
