Banti's Syndrome

Common Name(s)

Banti's Syndrome

Banti’s syndrome is a rare disorder that affects a person’s spleen. People with Banti’s syndrome have a spleen that is larger than normal (enlarged). Due to their enlarged spleen, more blood goes into the spleen. One of the jobs of the spleen is to remove old red blood cells from the blood. Red blood cells carry oxygen to all the cells of the body. When more blood enters the spleen then normal, the spleen removes too many red blood cells which meant the body has a harder time getting enough oxygen to all of the cells of the body. Talk with your doctor to find the best treatment if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Banti’s syndrome.
