Splenosis or ectopic spleens were detected in 22 of 45 patients splenectomized after either abdominal trauma or accidental lesions of the spleen during operation. The incidence of ectopic spleen tissue in various groups of splenectomized patients has been investigated by a sensitive scanning method employing reinjection of 99mTc-labelled heat damaged autologous erythrocytes. In comparison 7 cases were found among 45 patients who underwent splenectomy for haematological reasons. The time span… CONTINUE READING
