Abstract

We report on two father-son pairs with isolated nonsyndromal asplenia. This may represent autosomal dominant inheritance of a mutation in a gene involved with spleen development and determination of laterality. The incidence of hereditary isolated asplenia is unknown; therefore, screening for asplenia in first degree relatives of individuals with (poly)asplenia should be considered.
