A vital organ that defends against bacterial microbes
The spleen was thought in ancient times to be the seat of emotions but
its real function, in immunity and to remove time-expired blood cells and
circulating microbes, has only been gradually recognized.
Shaped much like a loose fist and tucked under the left side of the diaphragm,
the spleen is the most ignored and misunderstood of all organs. After all,
we read numerous times that someone in an automobile accident or a fight has a
ruptured spleen so the spleen is removed (splenectomy) and life goes on.
What we don't read about is that splenectomized people later have problems with
overwhelming bacterial infections of the blood (sepsis). What does this suggest
as the function of the spleen?
The spleen receives blood from an artery off of the aorta. After passing through
an intricate meshwork of tiny blood vessels, the blood continues to the liver.
The blood vessels of the spleen are surrounded by nests of B lymphocytes -
mainly of the memory type. As the blood slowly moves through the spleen, it is
monitored by T-cells for any non-self invaders. If some suspicious cell or molecule is
detected, it is presented to the resident B-cells for a match to an appropriate
memory B-cell. Once a matching B-cell is activated, the cell divides rapidly and
begins producing antibodies directed against the invading antigen.
The spleen blood vessels are also lined with macrophages which swallow and
digest debris in the blood such as worn out red blood cells and platelets. In a
disease such as mononucleosis, the macrophages in the spleen become overactive
and trap a higher number of white blood cells. In the process, the spleen becomes
swollen and may even rupture.
Because the spleen contains macrophages it is almost invariably involved
in the course of Gauchers disease when its normal function becomes exaggerated
so destroying formed elements of the blood. Macrophages are cells that provide
defense against infection by engulfing microbes; they also break down old cells
and time-expired proteins within the body.
Many patients with Gauchers disease have had their spleen removed - usually
to alleviate the effects of its over-activity but sometimes because it has been ruptured
by injury. The spleen is removed for a wide range of conditions besides Gauchers
disease and there is long-term experience of the effects of splenectomy (removal
of the spleen) as a result.
With an experienced surgeon and good post-operative care, immediate
difficulties due to the removal of the spleen are rare. However, beyond surgery,
two complications deserve mention: the risks of thrombosis (blood clots)
with embolism to the lungs causing severe breathing difficulties; and the risk of
overwhelming infection (sepsis or septicaemia).
After the spleen is removed, the number of platelets (minute fragments of blood
cells that are essential for normal blood clotting and the prevention of bleeding) usually
rises rapidly. This incurs the risk of spontaneous clot formation in the blood vessels
and, should these blood clots move to the lungs or elsewhere, there is the risk
