Clinical Information

  • Wandering Spleen-. a congenital or acquired condition in which the spleen is not in its normal anatomical position but moves about in the abdomen. this is due to laxity or absence of suspensory ligaments which normally provide peritoneal attachments to keep the spleen in a fixed position. clinical symptoms include abdominal pain, splenic torsion and ischemia.
  • Splenosis-. the spontaneous transplantation of splenic tissue to unusual sites after open splenic trauma, e.g., after automobile accidents, gunshot or stab wounds. the splenic pulp implants appear as red-blue nodules on the peritoneum, omentum, and mesentery, morphologically similar to multifocal pelvic endometriosis. (segen, dictionary of modern medicine, 1992)
  • Wandering Spleen-. a condition characterized by an abnormal spleen position due to loss, weakness, or malformation of one or more of the ligaments that hold the spleen in its normal position in the left upper abdomen. it may present as a birth defect or follow injuries or pregnancy. signs and symptoms include abdominal discomfort and splenomegaly.
  • Splenosis-. the presence of benign ectopic splenic tissue in the peritoneum.
  • Schistosoma Mansoni Infection-. an infection that is caused by schistosoma mansoni.

Patient Education

Spleen Diseases

Your spleen is an organ above your stomach and under your ribs on your left side. It is about as big as your fist. The spleen is part of your lymphatic system, which fights infection and keeps your body fluids in balance. It contains white blood cells that fight germs. Your spleen also helps control the amount of blood in your body, and destroys old and damaged cells.

Certain diseases might cause your spleen to swell. You can also damage or rupture your spleen in an injury, especially if it is already swollen. If your spleen is too damaged, you might need surgery to remove it. You can live without a spleen. Other organs, such as your liver, will take over some of the spleen's work. Without a spleen, however, your body will lose some of its ability to fight infections.
