Abstract

Abstract A case is reported which demonstrated the cardiac anomalies most frequently associated with congenital asplenia, in which an ectopic form of rudimentary splenic tissue was present, but the spleen as such was absent. This case, and the experience of others, strongly suggest that common factors control organogenesis of the spleen and of the cardiovascular system. Developmental anomalies of the spleen, taking the form of absence, a rudimentary state or polysplenia, have a strong tendency to be associated with cardiovascular malformations.
