Great post on Splenic Infarct at Altitude with Sickle Cell Trait

Posted Jun 13 2009 12:30am

The ExpeditionMedicine.co.uk crew has a very interesting post about a patient that suffered a splenic infarcture on a Peruvian trip.  Something to remember, as this patient had no known history of sickle cell disease or trait.
