The effect of splenectomy on the development of experimental pyelonephritis
- 7 Downloads
Although an unusually high incidence of a variety of infections in infants who had undergone splenectomy has been reported by a number of investigators the subject remains somewhat controversial. In the present experiments the role of the spleen in the protection of rats against experimentally induced hematogenous pyelonephritis was studied. The results of this study suggest that the spleen has an important preventive function against bacterial infection.
