The spleen is an organ responsible for many biological functions, such as immunological defense, the removal of foreign particles from the blood stream, the metabolism of bilirubins, lipids and several amino acids, the control of the number and maturity of blood leukocytes and platelets and haematopoesis.

This book is a collection of medical methods written exclusively to show the spleen in relation to basic sciences (anatomy and physiology) and related clinical practice and is a useful resource for clinical physicians, haematologists, oncologists, general surgeons, oncologic surgeons, trauma surgeons, resident physicians and medical students.
