"SPLENIC TORSION.
There are multiple case reports of spontaneous splenic torsion, typically relating to “a wandering spleen“.
What is a wandering spleen?
It is a rare condition characterised by the abnormal location of the spleen in the lower abdomen or pelvis. This results from increased splenic mobility due to the absence or laxity of its suspensory ligaments.
Wandering spleen has been described in patients ranging from 3 months to 82 years of age. It has an incidence of <0.25% of all splenectomies."
