Accessory spleen, post-mortem. An accessory spleen, or splenunculus, is a small nodule of splenic tissue found outside of the spleen. It may have formed due to a developmental anomaly or trauma to the spleen. Post-mortem examinations, also known as autopsies, are carried out to identify a cause of death, and to assess the health of a dead person's organs.
