  • Portal Cirrhosis

    He also had C/O abdominal distension and pedel edema.  Abdominal distension since 6 months.  K/C/O alcoholic liver disease, admitted for the same.  H/O pedal edema - pitting[slideshare.net] It has a lengthy latent period, usually followed by the sudden appearance of abdominal pain and swelling, hematemesis, dependent edema, or jaundice.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Symptoms: abdominal distension, weight loss, fatigue, jaundice, pruritus, coffee-ground vomit, melaena and confusion.[kenhub.com]

  • Fatty Liver

    Severe hepatopathy accompanied by jaundice used to be considered a rare complication.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Blood levels of alkaline phosphatase may become elevated in NAFLD.

  • Malignant Neoplasm of Pancreas

    Jaundice and related symptoms Jaundice is yellowing of the eyes and skin.[cancer.org] Jaundice. Pancreatic cancer that blocks the liver's bile duct can cause jaundice. Signs include yellow skin and eyes, dark-colored urine, and pale-colored stools.[mayoclinic.org] Pancreatic cancer leads to multiple symptoms, the most characteristic of which being abdominal pain that radiates to the back, jaundice, and weight loss.[symptoma.com]

  • Neonatal Hepatitis

    Infants with this condition are usually jaundiced. Jaundice that is caused by neonatal hepatitis is not the same as physiologic neonatal jaundice.[en.wikipedia.org] Serum alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase showed moderate elevations (110 IU/l and 61.5 IU/l, respectively), as well as the alkaline phosphatase which[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Liver-function tests were also markedly deranged at this time, with maximum values for serum alanine transferase, bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, and ammonia concentration[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Choledochal Cyst

    We report on a 68-year-old woman who had experienced epigastric abdominal distension and nausea for over 1 year.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hemobilia with jaundice as a result of cholestasis and bleeding from choledochal cyst is uncommon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On examination, she had mild abdominal distension with absent bowel sounds.
