Splenic Flexure syndrome is a chronic digestive disorder wherein spasms of the splenic flexure of the colon occur. These spasms are brought about by the gas that is trapped in the splenic flexure. Pain is the presenting feature in the great majority of those affected with the splenic-flexture syndrome, the left epigastric zone being the most usual site of origin. Radiation to the precordial area, the left shoulder and the ulnar aspect of the left arm forms the most common pattern but there are variations so that both shoulders, both arms, the neck and jaw and the posterior aspect of the thorax may be involved in various combinations.
