Liver-spleen scintiscan in kala-azar: case report

A L Maniot
1975 Journal of Nuclear Medicine  
Massive splenomegaly was found in a liver-spleen scan in a young man from Greece. Kala-azar was suggested as a possible cause and was confirmed by culturing Leishmania donovani from the bone marrow aspirate. The differential diagnosis of massive splenomegaly should include kala-azar when a patient has been in an endemic area.
