Gamna-Gandy Bodies

Gamna-Gandy bodies of the spleen are organized hemorrhagic foci caused by portal hypertension. They appear as low-signal lesions throughout the spleen on MRI. Here we see T2-weighted (top) and pre-contrast (middle) and portal venous phase gradient echo T1-weighted images showing multiple hypointense splenic lesions in a patient with cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. CT didn't show any focal splenic lesions.
