First of them is hematogenious spreading and the other one is directly planting which is more commonly seen at genitourinary tumors(3). According to 25 yeared clinicopathological study of Lam KY et al; most common primary tumors metastas to spleen: breast (22.9%), lung (20.2%), colon and rectum (9.4%), ovary (9%), stomach (6.9%) and skin (esp. malignant melanoma-5%). According to same study metastasis from liver cancers are 2.8%(16). İn our case malignancies can metastate to spleen were excluded.

A blood sample is collected with a heel prick from the newborn 24–48 hours after birth and sent to the lab for analysis.
