Caption

Enlarged spleen (splenomegaly). Light micrograph of a section through an enlarged spleen that has occurred in myelofibrosis. Myelofibrosis leads to bone marrow losing its ability to produce blood cells. The spleen enlarges to compensate. In a foetus, the spleen produces red blood cells, and it reverts back to this role if other blood producing (haemopoietic) systems fail. Magnification unknown.
