Caption

Splenomegaly. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan showing a greatly enlarged spleen (green at right). This condition (splenomegaly) occurs as a result of many diseases such as malaria, mononucleosis (glandular fever), tuberculosis and typhoid fever; blood disorders such as leukaemia, thalassaemia and sickle cell anaemia may also be responsible. It sometimes reflects the presence of a tumour affecting the spleen. The spleen may rupture causing severe bleeding, which may be fatal. The organ coloured in yellow is the liver and the bony tissue, ribs and spinal column, is coloured pink.
