The disorder is not genetic in origin. Instead of ligaments, the spleen is attached by a stalk-like tissue supplied with blood vessels. Because there is little or nothing to hold it in place, the spleen "wanders" in the lower abdomen or pelvis where it may be mistaken for an unidentified abdominal mass.
