Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Torsion and infarction of a 'wandering spleen' is a rare disease which is often confused with other acute abdominal crises. A correct preoperative diagnosis, when made, has usually been determined by arteriographic studies. A child is described in whom changes in the TcSC scan made a correct diagnosis possible by non-invasive methods.
