Author(s): Dr. Jyoti Gupta, Dr. Sushrut Fulare and Dr. Satish Deshmukh

Abstract: Banti’s Syndrome is characterized by splenomegaly, anemia in absence of any hematological disorder and idiopathic portal hypertension. It is a rare disease in the West, although its incidence in countries like Japan, India and Pakistan is relatively higher. A 45-year-old male presented with pain in abdomen, generalized weakness, massive splenomegaly, mild hepatomegaly and pancytopenia. Splenectomy was performed and post-operative recovery of the patient was excellent with subsidization of abdominal pain and increase in platelet count, hemoglobin and total leucocytic counts. Histopathology report revealed congestive splenomegaly confirming our diagnosis. This condition is more commonly seen in socio-economically disadvantaged people. The management of this disease is primarily based on treatment of gastro-intestinal bleeding due to portal hypertension and treatment of hypersplenism, ranging from variceal ligation and endoscopic sclerotherapy, emergency stunts, beta blockers to splenectomy Banti’s syndrome is a rare disorder causing splenomegaly, idiopathic portal hypertension and anemia. Surgical management by performing splenectomy can help improve the general condition of the patient as well as avoid the complications of portal hypertension and splenomegaly.
