Abstract

An enlarged spleen (splenomegaly) is a common imaging finding and may be related to a broad array of underlying conditions. The multifaceted functions of the spleen make it susceptible to involvement by a variety of pathophysiologic processes. Understanding these conditions and incorporating all relevant clinical and radiologic data allow narrowing the differential diagnosis.
