Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) is a growth factor used for stem-cell mobilization and neutropenia treatment. We report that splenomegaly was detected in a 16-years-old patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia following the administration of G-CSF. The presence of splenomegaly in the patients receiving G-CSF may be related to the use of G-CSF.

Keywords: Splenomegaly, Colony-stimulating factor.

Granülosit-koloni stimüle eden faktör (G-CSF) kök hücre mobilizasyonu ve nötropeni tedavisi için kullanılan bir büyüme faktörüdür. Bu olgu 16 yaşında ve G-CSF kullanımı ardından splenomegali gelişen bir olgu olup, splenomegali nedeninin G-CSF olduğu düşünülmektedir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Splenomegali, Koloni-stimülan faktör.
