Approach to splenomegaly Approach to splenomegaly Presentation Transcript

  • SPLENOMEGALY- INTEGRATED APPROACH TO DIAGNOSIS CANDIDATE: DR. SARATH MENON.R DIVISION OF GASTROENTEROLOGY MGM MEDICAL COLLEGE,INDORE
  • INTRODUCTION  Definition & symptoms  Classification  Hypersplenism  Etiology  Step-wise approach  Associated features  Investigations
  •  Galen –source of black “black bile‟ or  “melancholia”
  • NORMAL SPLEEN  Normal size – 12 cm length , 7 cm width (radionuclide scan) -13cm craniocaudal diamtr (USG)  weight- < 250gm  Located along- 9th, 10th,11th ribs mid-axillary  Spleen should be twice the size to be PALPABLE  Palpable spleens are not always ABNORMAL  3% normal population has palpable spleen
  • FUNCTIONS  Quality control over RBC – culling & pitting  Synthesis of antibodies  Removal of antibody coated bacteria & RBC
  • EXAMINATION OF SPLEEN  Inspection  Percussion – nixon method - rt.lateral ducubitus, > 8cm - castells method supine,lower ICS ,full exp & insp splenomegaly=dullness - traubes sign supine,6th rib,costal margin, anterior axill. line splenomegaly= dullness  Palpation - bimanual method,hooking maneuver
  • TRAUBE‟S SPACE
  • BIMANUAL PALPATION
  • DIFFERENCES  Sharp edge  Notch –med border  Cross midline  Moves with respiration  Cannot get above it  Round edge  No notch  Not cross midline  Not moves with resp.  Can get above it spleen kidney
  • SPLENOMEGALY  Mild,moderate,massive  Massive - beyond umblicus, crosses mid line into pelvis (>8cm)  Moderate- b/w costal margin & umblicus (4-8cm)  Mild - just palpable (1-3cm)
  • HYPERSLENISM  Splenomegaly  Pancytopenia  Presence of hypercellular marrow  Reversal with splenectomy
  • SYMPTOMS OF SPLENOMEGALY  Pain  Early satiety  Feeling of heaviness in LUQ
  • MECHANISM OF SPENOMEGALY  Reactive Reticulo-endothelial hyperplasia  Lymphoid hyperplasia  Proliferation of lymphoma cells  Infiltration by abnormal cells  Extramedullary hemopoeisis  Proliferation of macrophages d/t RBC destruction  Vascular congestion
  • CAUSES OF SPLENOMEGALY  Infective  Hyperplastic  Congestive  Infiltration
  • INFECTIVE  Acute & subacute- IMN, infective endocarditis, severe pyogenic inf. Viral hepatitis,CMV,AIDS  Chronic - TB,syphilis,brucellosis  Tropical splenomegaly  Malaria,kala azar, trypanosomiasis
  • CONGESTIVE  Intra hepatic obst.portal hypertension - cirrhosis,biliary cirrhosis,hemochromatosis - primary sclerosing cholangitis  Extra-hepatic portal hypertension - venous malf,thrombosis,stenosis - ext.occlusion of portal,splenic vein  Chronic passive congestion of cardiac origin
  • HYPERPLASTIC  Extramedullary hemopoeisis- myeloprolif.d/s - marrow damage - marrow infiltration  Reticulo endothelial hyperplasia –(abn.RBC) - sickle cell d/s,spherocytosis,Hbnopathies, thalassemia major,PNH
  • INFILTRATIVE  Malignant infiltration- CML,lymphoblastic - lymhomas, MPD, - angiosarcoma,tumors - metastasis (melanoma)  benign - - storage d/s –Gaucher‟s,Neiman-pick - amyloidosis - hurler‟s syndrome,MPS - cysts,fibromas,hemangiomas,hamartomas -Eosnophilic granulomas
  • DISORDERED IMMUNOREGULATION  Felty‟s syndrome- RA+ splenomegaly+leucopenia  Systemic lupus erythromatosis  Collagen vascular diseases  Sarcoidosis  Immune thrombocytopenia
  • MASSIVE SPLENOMEGALY (>8CM >1000GM)  Myeloproliferative disorder  Chronic malaria,kala-azar (trop. Splenomegaly)  Storage disorders  Thalassemia major  Sarcoidosis  Hairy cell leukemia  Gaucher disease  Diffuse splenic hemangiomatosis
  • MODERATE SPLENOMEGALY(4-8CM)  Cirrhosis  Lymphomas„  Amyloid  Splenic abscess,infarct  Hemolytic anemias  IMN
  • MILD SPLENOMEGALY (1-3CM)  Acute infective conditons  Acute malaria,tyhoid,kala-azar,septicemias
  • STEP-WISE APPROACH TO SPLENOMEGALY  History  Physical examination  Laboratory testings  Imaging  Specialised testing
  • HISTORY  Age ,gender  Race  h/o recent infections like malaria  Fever,weight loss,sweating (lymphomas,infections)  Pruritis  Abnormal bleeding/bruising  Joint pain  h/o alcholism  h/o trauma  h/o neonatal umblical sepsis  Residence & travel abroad
  • HISTORY …..CONT  Jaundice  High risk sexual behavior (AIDS)  Past medical history  Drugs
  • PHYSICAL EXAMINATION  Size of the spleen  Hepatomegaly  Lymphadenopathy  Fever  Icterus  Bruising,petechiae  Oral & supf.sepsis  Stigmata of liver disease  Stigmata of RA/SLE  Splinter hemorrhage,retinal hemorrhage  Cardiac murmurs
  • LAB INVESTIGATIONS  CBC  Blood smear  Retic count  Blood C/S  Serology (fungal,viral,parasitic)  LFT  Hb electropheresis/ coombs test  Coag.profile  Amylase/lipase  AMA, Anti CCP,RA factor  Bone marrow analysis
  • IMAGING  USG- sensitive & specific non-invasive  CT scan – etiology of splenomegaly - liver size,heterogenecity - splenic mets, abscess,calcf.,cysts - retro peritoneal LN - craniocaudal ln > 10 cm  Liver- spleen colloid scan- (RBC –Cr51,Tc99) - hepatic steatosis,SOL,splenic functions - PHT,colloid shift +  MRI/ Doppler usg- portal/splenic vein thrombosis - cavernomas
