    I've just watched one of the episodes of Dr. House. In described case patient's spleen was damaged, in process its cells had spread through the body creating 16 spleens. Is it really possible?

    I have no idea. But you could look it up here: Medical Reviews of House

    Edit:
    The final solution made a certain amount of sense. Spleens can “multiply” after trauma, and there have been cases where doctors removed the largest thinking it was the only one. I give [it] another B.
