Abstract

During our dissection classes, we observed a lobulated spleen with multiple hila and fissures. The spleen presented 4 hila and 5 deep fissures. The hila were seen on the visceral surface. The fissures extended into the substance of the spleen from superior border, inferior border and the visceral surface. Because of these fissures, the spleen appeared to be lobulated, having seven distinct lobes/lobules. Knowledge of this variation could be useful to the radiologists and surgeons.
