Abstract

During the medico-legal autopsy of a male aged 45 years, a bilobed morphology of the spleen was observed. An oblique fissure was located longitudinally at the mid-region of the diaphragmatic surface of the spleen. The fissure was partially deep and observed throughout the diaphragmatic surface. The clinician should be aware of the developmental anomalies of the spleen; as such anomalies may cause confusion during the procedures like splenic biopsy and splenectomy. We believe that, the present case report is important to the radiologists and clinicians involved in the diagnosis and management of splenic pathology. The knowledge is also enlightening to the morphologists and embryologists. The radiologist and clinician should make sure that the fissure in a spleen is not misinterpreted as a laceration or rupture.
