The spleen may no longer be regarded as an organ of complete mystery. Out of ancient and modern superstitious musings and the obscurity of an incomplete, controversial and largely hypothetical pathologic hematology have gradually emerged sufficient facts relating to splenic structure and functions to compare favorably with current knowledge of the other abdominal viscera. The pioneer work of Barcroft, McNee, Lord Dawson, and Krumbhaar, in creating sound fundamental concepts of physiologic splenic functions has been supplemented by thorough controlled studies of human pathologic splenic diseases, with improved technics by the clinical hematologists, Kaznelson, Frank, Dameshek, Doan and Wiseman among others.
