Meaning of Splenitis
Splenomegaly is an enlargement of the spleen. The spleen usually lies in the left upper quadrant (LUQ) of the human abdomen. It is one of the four cardinal signs of hypersplenism, some reduction in the number of circulating blood cells affecting granulocytes, erythrocytes or platelets in any combination; a compensatory proliferative response in the bone marrow; and the potential for correction of these abnormalities by splenectomy. - See link


Splenitis in Spanish is Esplenomegalia
La esplenomegalia es un agrandamiento patológico del bazo o estructura esplénica más allá de sus dimensiones normales (11 cm). También podría considerarse en función del peso (peso normal en un adulto, en los hombres: 80-200 gramos, en las mujeres: 70-180 gramos, con un promedio de 150 gramos). - See link
