Splenic puncture as a diagnostic aid in cases of idiopathic splenomegaly has been employed by European investigators for many years. In North America the procedure has been a rarity until recently, and at present spleen punctures are common only in the larger medical teaching and research centers. In view of the increasing interest in splenic aspirates, the present monograph is timely as a reference for those interested in lymphomatous disease.
The first edition of Dr. Moeschlin's work was published in Switzerland in 1947. The present printing is an English translation of the Swiss edition with added illustrations and pertinent material
