A congenital or acquired condition in which the spleen is not in its normal anatomical position but moves about in the abdomen. This is due to laxity or absence of suspensory ligaments which normally provide peritoneal attachments to keep the spleen in a fixed position. Clinical symptoms include abdominal pain, splenic torsion and ischemia.
