Milza is the Italian word for spleen. In some countries, like Italy, it is used as food usually combined with liver and prepared or cooked as a topping for crostini.

Milza is pronounced "meel-zah"

Spleen is called "lapay" in Filipino or in the Philippines, where it is also used as food, as when cooking Igado or Bachoy
