Congenital absence of spleen is often associated with malpositions and malformations of other organ system such as congenital heart disease partial situs inversus, symmetric lobulation of the liver and the lungs. This is a rare syndrome but has been reported in increasing frequency in recent years. The pure congenital asplenia is a very rare disease. We experienced two cases of congenital asplenia. One is a pure congenital asplenia and the other is an asplenia associated with congenital heart disease and partial situs inversus. The review of the literature was made briefly.
Key Words: Pure congenital asplenia and asplenia syndrome associated congenital cardiac malforma- tions and partial situs inversus.
