Thanks for your question.
Dromedary hump is a radiological term for normal kidney tissue molded by the adjacent organs.
This is most commonly seen in the left kidney caused by the spleen.
Since this looks like camel's hump on the film, this is called dromedary hump.
this is a normal finding.
Does this indicate a probem with the spleen?
no not at all.
The patient also has a blood problem for with he has to have a procrite (sp) shot about every two weeks to keep his hemoglobin level at at least 11.0. Could the two conditions be related?
the patient should have a CT scan or MRI to rule out any enlarged spleen.
Sometimes, enlarged spleen can cause anemia and also may press on the kidney.
Besides enlarged spleen any other mass or tumor also should be ruled out.
Thanks so very much for your help.
