The growing activity of hemangioma of spleen keeps unknown. To search theoretical basis for whether to take the operation, this study analyzed clinical data of 21 hemangioma patients, and 16 surgical specimens were analyzed immunohistochemistry of Ki-67, Bcl-2 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Both 14 cases of cavernous hemangioma were positive for VEGF, and negative in capillary hemangioma, there was statistical significant difference between two types of hemangioma (P < 0.05). The most tumors had a low expression of Ki-67 with a mean ± standard deviation (SD) of 6.62 ± 6.24%, whereas the mean ± SD of Bcl-2 labeling index was 36.06 ± 19.05%. According to the statistical results, the expression of Ki-67 and Bcl-2 did not correlate with age, gender, tumor size, amount of tumor and angiomatous types. Hemangioma of spleen was one benign tumor with a tendency of slow growth. Therefore, operation should be strictly selected, we recommend observation of patients with small, asymptomatic splenic lesions, which meet the radiologic criteria for hemangiomas.
