    Abstract

    Enlargement of an accessory spleen following splenectomy may be due to compensatory hypertrophy or recurrence of hematologic or other disorders. Spontaneous necrosis and hemorrhage in an accessory spleen are rarely described. We report a case in which an enlarged accessory spleen complicated by spontaneous hemorrhage was identified on computed tomography (CT) and confirmed at surgery.
