50 corrosion casts of the splenic artery and its tree were studied to observe the arterial segmentation in the goat spleen on the basis of the intrasplenic distribution. The following observations were made: (i) 74% showed the presence of two arterial segments, a right and a left one; (ii) 10% revealed three arterial segments, a hilar, a right and a left one, and (iii) 16% showed the absence of arterial segmentation in the goat spleen.
