                            3. Borderline splenomegaly.
                              • Please correlate the USG (ultrasonography) findings with history and clinicopathologically.
                                • Investigations to be done:
                                  1. Complete blood count.
                                  2. Liver function tests which shall include serum proteins, bilirubin levels, and liver enzymes (SGOT, SGPT, GGTP).
                                  3. Investigations have their limitations. Solitary radiological or pathological and other investigations never confirm the final diagnosis. They only help in diagnosing the disease in correlation to clinical symptoms and other related tests. Please interpret accordingly. Report not valid for medicolegal purposes.
