Multimodality imaging of a neonatal wandering spleen
Wandering spleen, a rare entity, is caused by the absence or laxity of the normal anchoring splenic ligaments. Only three neonatal cases have been reported in the English-language literature. We present the clinical and multimodality imaging findings of a newborn with laceration and hemorrhage of a wandering spleen. The course was complicated by the concurrent diagnosis of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, which confused the clinical picture when a falling hematocrit raised the question of rebleeding several days after presentation.
