During my dissection classes, a bi-lobed and large lobulated spleen with a deep vertical fissure measuring 2cms deep was observed. Fissure is in between superior and inferior border i.e. in diaphragmatic surface. As it is shown in the below photograph, the spleen is marked in two halves with a fissure and make the Spleen in to 2/3rd superior lobe & 1/3rd of inferior lobe.
This knowledge is useful to the radiologists and surgeons.
