Splenectomy in myelosclerosis
- 7 Downloads
A case of primary myelosclerosis is described which showed a rise in the hæmoglobin level after splenectomy. This improvement was maintained until the patient died three years later of intestinal hæmorrhage from a gastric ulcer.
The effects of splenectomy on the peripheral blood, bones and other organs are described and the indications for splenectomy in myelosclerosis discussed.
