Abstract

Primary (4 cases) and secondary (6 cases) laparotomy with splenectomy was performed on 10 patients aged 8 to 18 years with lymphogranulomatosis in various stages. Massive involvement of spleen and abdominal lymph nodes (but not of the liver) was found in 2 patients during secondary laparotomy despite treatment (with cytostatic drugs and irradiation) and absence of subjective complaints or abnormal laboratory results. This combined surgical method is recommended for patients in whom the spleen continues to be a source of haematogenous metastasis.
