Multi-Modality Imaging Abnormalities of the Pediatric Spleen

Purpose or Case Report: Teaching Points
1. To review the normal imaging appearance of the spleen on ultrasound, CT and MRI.
2. Discuss the imaging characteristics of various pediatric splenic pathology.
3. Learn the epidemiology, appropriate imaging workup, and management of congenital pediatric splenic abnormalities.

Introduction
The spleen can be involved in a wide range of pathologies, yet can be frequently overlooked on imaging. Splenic disorders can be seen in isolation or may be secondary to a systemic disease. Different imaging modalities can be utilized to evaluate the spleen and include ultrasound, CT, and MRI. We will perform a case-based review of the imaging characteristics of various types of pediatric splenic pathologies. After completing this educational exhibit, the reader will be able to recognize the various causes and imaging characteristics of pediatric splenic diseases. The following topics will be discussed:
Congenital splenic anomalies – asplenia, polysplenia, accessory spleen
Splenomegaly
Trauma
Inflammation/infection
Infarction
Hemochromatosis
Splenic cysts
Hemangiomas
Hamartomas
Lymphoma
Splenic metastasis
