This book, an extension of The Spleen and Hypersplenism by Dameshek and Estren (1948), presents a rather complete discussion of the current concepts of the anatomy, histology, physiology and pathology of the spleen.
The material is presented in outline form with numerous illustrations and charts which serve to simplify a difficult subject. The book is bound in loose-leaf style and the contents are actually a condensation of an American Medical Association exhibit presented by the authors in 1950. There are seven large sections which consider the spleen in health and disease, as well as some aspects of splenic surgery. In
