Category: Anatomy

Abstract:

During routine dissection, duplication of the spleen was noted in one of the cadavers. However, the review of the literature revealed that this presentation is very unusual and rare. However many cases of accessory splenic tissue have been reported of different sizes and sites. Since we have encountered a rare anomaly this is being reported for its rarity.
