Intrahepatic splenosis

Valli M., Quaglino F., Arese P.


PDF  


Splenosis is an autotransplantation of splenic tissue occurring after splenic injuries. The number of patients who develop splenosis either after splenic rupture or therapeutic splenectomy is reported to be between 26% and 67%; only a few cases of intrahepatic splenosis are reported in the literature. A case of intrahepatic splenosis in an initial diagnosis of hepatocarcinoma made after abdominal ultrasound, TC scan and needle biopsy is reported. In the clinical history of the patient there was an abdominal trauma at the age of 16, requiring emergency splenectomy and blood transfusion.
