The maximum volume of male spleen was 200ml in group D (46-60years) and female spleen was 150ml in group B (16-30years). The minimum volume was 30ml in group A (upto15years) in both male and female. The maximum mean volume of male was 84.23 ml in group B (16-30years) and minimum mean volume was 47.75ml in group A (upto 15years). The mean volume of female spleen was highest, 78.33ml in C (31-45years) age group and lowest 45.62ml in A (upto 15years) age group. From this study it was evident that the volume of spleen increases with age during childhood and adolescence remains stable in young adult and declined in older age groups. Volume of spleen shows positive correlation with age up to 60 years of age. Mean±SE volume of male spleen was 75.27±3.78ml, ranges from 30-200ml and in female; mean±SE volume was 60.51±4.90ml, ranges from 30-150ml. Here it is observed that volume of spleen was higher in male than in female but the difference was not statistically significant.
