Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Icing sugar spleen, post-mortem. The pathologist is pulling apart the tissue to reveal the spleen (centre). This condition is known as 'icing sugar' spleen due to the white material seen on the external surface. A healthy spleen is a dark red/brown in colour. Also known as splenic capsular hyalinosis, and perisplenitis cartilaginea, it can be caused by several types of underlying conditions. The spleen is an abdominal organ that filters old red blood cells from the blood. It is also part of the immune system.
