Abstract

Guidelines for the prevention and treatment of infection in patients with an absent or dysfunctional spleen were first published by the British Committee for Standards in Haematology (BCSH) in 1996 and formally reviewed in 2002. Although the guidelines originated from discussion within the BCSH, the intended readership is wide given the multidisciplinary nature of the management of hyposplenism.
