No treatment: There is no specific treatment. Surgery is indicated if you develop spontaneous splenic rupture. Avoid dangerous activities that can place you at risk for splenic injury.
Dr. Creighton Wright
General Surgery 56 years experience
Expectantly: The mono resolves and so does the splenomegaly.
Dr. Thomas Namey
Rheumatology 48 years experience
Sometimes: With predisone or other steroids, oral or injectable!
