73 Possible Causes for Abdominal Pain, Cerebral Embolism, Splinter Hemorrhage

  • Subacute Bacterial Endocarditis

    Herein, we report a 25-year-old male diagnosed with SBE, who presented with the unusual symptom of sudden onset of left upper quadrant abdominal pain for 2 days.[] SBE manifests many skin findings including petechiae, splinter hemorrhages of the nails, Osler's and laneway lesions, clubbing of the fingers, and findings suggestive of angiitis[] Subacute bacterial endocarditis can develop from modest to moderate systemic symptoms: cerebral, renal, splenic or mesenteric embolism, heart failure, or any combination of[]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    PATIENT CONCERN: A 42-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of fever, abdominal pain, headache, and right limb weakness.[] He was afebrile but had a pansystolic murmur and a solitary splinter hemorrhage on the right thumb.[] Endovascular embolization or coiling of aneurysms or parent arteries can be used to treat selected cases of cerebral mycotic aneurysms.[]

  • Acute Bacterial Endocarditis

    The patient presented with fevers, fatigue, abdominal pain and renal failure and was found to have acute left-sided staphylococcal endocarditis.[] There is generalized clubbing: involving all the fingers and toes and there are two splinter hemorrhages in the left index finger.[] Subacute bacterial endocarditis can develop from modest to moderate systemic symptoms: cerebral, renal, splenic or mesenteric embolism, heart failure, or any combination of[]

  • Embolism

Clin Neurol Neurosurg. 2009 Sep. 111(7):597-600. [Medline].[]

  • Bacterial Endocarditis

    On the fourth postoperative day, the patient presented with fever and worsening abdominal pain, which was later diagnosed as infectious aortitis.[] Physical exam Up to half of all patients will exhibit classic physical signs such as 1) petechiae, 2) splinter hemorrhages, 3) Osler's nodes, 4) Janeway lesions and 5) Roth's[] Neurologic syndromes include cerebral embolism, infarction, and intracerebral hemorrhage and stroke.[]

  • Arterial Embolism

    We report on 2 cases of visceral arterial embolism presenting with acute abdominal pain.[] Can also get microangiopathic hemolytic anemias like TTP/HUS, HELLP, and in Catastrophic APS (see below) Skin manifestations are common and include splinter hemorrhages, livedo[] One hundred four patients had cerebral embolism, 57 had transient ischemic attacks, 16 coronary embolism, and 3 had peripheral embolism.[]

  • Cholesterol Embolism

    Cholesterol emboli can present as renal failure, hypertension, spells of numbness, abdominal pain, and myocardial infarction, or as a multisystem disease that closely approximates[] Hemorrhages (see Splinter Hemorrhages, [[Splinter Hemorrhages]]) Gastrointestinal Manifestations Acute Mesenteric Ischemia/Infarction (see Acute Mesenteric Ischemia, [[Acute[] Although cerebral cholesterol embolism is a well-known process, the range of clinical manifestations has not been established.[]

  • Candida Endocarditis

    The following symptoms may be present: Epigastric pain Nausea and vomiting Abdominal pain Fever and chills Abdominal mass (in some cases) Respiratory tract candidiasis The[] Other signs can include: Small areas of bleeding under the nails ( splinter hemorrhages ) Red, painless skin spots on the palms and soles (Janeway lesions) Red, painful nodes[] Urgent valve surgery after acute cerebral embolism during infective endocarditis. Medizinische Klinik 1998; 93:284-293 40: Gnann JW, Dismukes WE.[]

  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    We present a 24-year-old-male with left lower quadrant abdominal pain, elevated eosinophil counts and splenomegaly.[] Splinter hemorrhages were found in both hands.[] […] veins) or intracardiac. 4,5 Arterial thrombosis, especially with resultant digit necrosis, is exceedingly rare. 4,6-9 Most arterial occlusions in reality reflect peripheral embolism[]

  • Fat Embolism

    The initial symptoms are nonspecific, such as back and/or abdominal pain, fever, and fatigue, which may rapidly progress to respiratory failure and severe neurologic compromise[] […] of cerebral fat embolism, improve the treatment efficiency and reduce the misdiagnosis rate.[] CONCLUSIONS: In head injured patients with long bone fractures one should consider cerebral fat embolism.[]
