What is the treatment for an enlarged spleen?
Because splenomegaly is due to an underlying illness, treatment will
depend upon the primary cause. In some situations, removal of the spleen
(splenectomy) may be part of the treatment. For example, in hereditary
spherocytosis, misshapen red blood cells are filtered from the blood stream
causing anemia and an enlarged spleen. Splenectomy limits the number of red
blood cells destroyed and helps treat the disease.
