The relationship between splenic vein thrombosis and Banti's disease has been much discussed and, like most unsettled questions, it is possible that the cause of disagreement lies in the different conceptions of what actually constitutes Banti's disease. On the one hand, many prefer to speak of the Banti syndrome and thereby testify to their belief that it is a group of symptoms and pathologic changes which may have several pathogenic factors. Among these factors they would include splenic vein thrombosis as primary. Others largely agree with Banti in his conception of a disease which progresses through the stages as described
