A 24-year-old female asked:

Calcified granulomas within my spleen, bilateral renal cysts, 4mm kidney stone and punctate calcifications in my pelvis, what would the underlying condition be?

Mostly normal: These are all trivial imaging findings. The old stuff in your spleen probably reflects a long-ago victory over an infection with histoplasmosis. Kidney cysts are trivial and very common. The calcium stuff in your pelvis is probably phleboliths which never cause trouble. I hope the kidney stone stays in place or can be managed.
