Splenogonadal fusion (SGF) is a rare malformation occurring in both men and women (male-female ratio 16.6:1). This generally relatively rare benign embryonic malformation has been described in the literature often in the form of a case report, mainly by urologists, pediatric surgeons, radiologists and pathologists. A case of a 63-year-old man with no external deformities in whom SGF of the continuous type was documented as an incidental finding during a forensic autopsy and in the post-mortem computed tomography (CT) is described. A comparison with the international literature shows that this case constitutes a great rarity within the last 20 years.
