Department of Surgery, Japanese Red Cross Nagoya Daiichi Hospital, 3-35 Michishita-cho, Nakamura-ku, Nagoya, 453-8511, Japan.

Splenic cysts are rare and tend to have elevated tumor markers, of which carbohydrate antigen (CA) 19-9 is the most frequently elevated. Therefore, splenic cysts with elevated serum carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels and without CA19-9 elevation are extremely rare. A 26-year-old woman presented with sudden upper abdominal pain while sleeping. Read More

Splenic rupture secondary to amyloid light-chain (AL) amyloidosis associated with multiple myeloma.

J Surg Case Rep 2019 Mar 29;2019(3):rjz021. Epub 2019 Mar 29.

Trauma Surgery and Surgical Critical Care, Geisinger Wyoming Valley Hospital, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18711, USA.

Splenic rupture in the absence of major trauma is a rare occurrence, which may occur by idiopathic means or a specific pathologic process. One such condition, amyloidosis, involves the extracellular deposition of abnormally folded 'amyloid' protein, which can affect the spleen. Protein infiltration in the organ may cause splenomegaly and potentially capsular rupture in advanced cases. Read More

Plasmodium-specific antibodies block in vivo parasite growth without clearing infected red blood cells.

PLoS Pathog 2019 02 27;15(2):e1007599. Epub 2019 Feb 27.

QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Herston, Brisbane QLD, Australia.

Plasmodium parasites invade and multiply inside red blood cells (RBC). Through a cycle of maturation, asexual replication, rupture and release of multiple infective merozoites, parasitised RBC (pRBC) can reach very high numbers in vivo, a process that correlates with disease severity in humans and experimental animals. Thus, controlling pRBC numbers can prevent or ameliorate malaria. Read More

The distinction between primary and reactive thrombocytosis by bone marrow histology is very important. Reactive thrombocytosis, the most common cause of thrombocytosis, can be expected in postsplenectomy states; however, close hematological evaluation of prolonged thrombocytosis is essential to identify patients who may have an underlying myeloproliferative neoplasm. We report a 37-year-old woman who was found to have portal, mesenteric, and splenic vein thrombosis with thrombocytosis, two months after she had a splenectomy for spontaneous splenic rupture.

Splenic Embolization After Trauma: An Opportunity to Improve Best Immunization Practices.

J Surg Res 2018 12 14;232:293-297. Epub 2018 Jul 14.

Trauma/Critical Care Division, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, Kansas. Electronic address:

Background: The spleen is the second most commonly injured solid organ during blunt abdominal trauma. Although total splenectomy is frequently performed for injury, splenic rupture can also be managed by splenic embolization. For these patients, current Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations indicate that if 50% or more of the splenic mass is lost, patients should be treated as though they are asplenic.
