GONZALEZ GONZALEZ, Vicente Raúl et al. Diffuse splenic angiomatosis as a cause of splenomegaly. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2008, vol.37, n.2. ISSN 0138-6557.

Diffuse splenic angiomatosis is a cause of splenomegaly that is not usually considered in the differential diagnosis of this clinical problem. It has been related to infections caused by different Bordetella microorganisms. A male patient with pain on the left hypochondrium of 2 months of evolution and isolated splenomegaly was presented. After splenectomy, the diagnosis of diffuse splenic angiomatosis was confirmed. It could not be connected with Bortedella infection. It was concluded that this diagnosis should be taken into account in any patient with isolated splenomegaly.

Keywords : Splenic angiomatosis; splenomegaly.
