Can adult Hirschsprungs, redundancy of transverse colon, cause accessory spleen from spleen injury caused by colon adhesion at the splenic flexure?
Not quite, but....: An accessory spleen is something that one person in four is born with, or that can happen if the splenic capsule is torn and some of the pulp is released.
