Hi! My sister has hepatospenomegaly. I think that is something related to liver, am I right? I don’t know anything about this disease, I couldn’t ask her. I see that is very difficult for her. What mean hepatospenomegaly? What are causes of hepatospenomegaly? Thank you.

Hi!Hepatomegaly is the enlargement of the liver beyond its normal size. Hepatosplenomegaly is enlargement of both the liver and the spleen -- see splenomegaly.If the liver becomes enlarged enough that it can be palpated below the costal margin, the patient may have hepatomegaly. General causes include infection (viral, bacterial, or parasitic), malignancy (cancer or tumors), anemias, storage diseases, heart failure, congenital heart disease, toxins, and metabolic disturbances.
