RBC Great improvement after splenectomy

Whenever you see a case describing a child that has seen tremendous improvement of his anemia after splenectomy

don't think other hemolytic anemias or hemoglobinopathies, true they improve with spleen removal but not as classical as in the case of congenital spherocytosis
