PMID:  240914     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case report illustrating the value of spleen scanning in the diagnosis of a rare anomaly characterized by fusion of the spleen and left testis is described. This malformation results from faulty organogenesis during the fifth to the eighth week of fetal development. Only 65 cases have been reported in the world literature. In most instances, the anomaly is recognized as an incidental finding at autopsy or at surgical exploration of the abdomen. In 20% of cases the anomaly is associated with osseous malformations such as peromelia, ectromelia, micrognathia, and talipes.
