    Ret ... how does DoDMERB view an enlarged spleen. The candidate has had no problem aside from monitoring red blood cell count.

    Current splenomegaly (enlarged spleen) is a disqualification. I do not know what the chances are for a waiver. I would assume it would depend on the cause of the splenomegaly and the chances that it may get worse over time.
