Splenogonadal fusion limb defects micrognatia

Common Name(s)

Splenogonadal fusion limb defects micrognatia

Splenogonadal fusion (SGF) is a rare congenital anomaly of abnormal fusion between the spleen and the gonad or the remnants of the mesonephros. In 'continuous SGF,' there is a cord-like connection between the 2 organs, whereas in 'discontinuous SGF,' there is fusion of accessory splenic tissue and the gonad without a distinct structural connection to the spleen itself. Forty-eight percent of individuals with continuous SGF have additional malformations, compared to 9% of those with discontinuous SGF ({3:McPherson et al., 2003}).
