fig1: Abdominal CT scan showing marked hepatosplenomegaly.

Mentions: As no focus of infection had been identified at this stage, a CT scan of the thorax and abdomen was performed postoperatively. This demonstrated small bilateral pleural effusions and bilateral basal atelectasis however, the most striking finding was of gross hepatosplenomegaly with no intrathoracic or intra-abdominal lymphadenopathy (see Figure 1).
