Causes and Locations[edit]

This page may need editing by a native English speaker. I haven't studied medicine, but I have studied biology and physiology going on 10 years, and the first sentence of the Causes and Locations section doesn't make sense: "Accessory spleens may be formed during embryonic development as rests of splenic tissue...." "Rest" cannot be plural except in music and poetry. What was this part supposed to mean? MotherShabubu (talk) 20:43, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Rest is a medical term meaning a fragment of embryonic tissue retained after embryonic development. [1] I'll take a look at it and try to make a concise statement that avoids jargon. Thanks for the extra set of eyes.Novangelis (talk) 21:44, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
