55 Possible Causes for Abdominal Wall Edema, Ascites, Proteinuria

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    Examination revealed bilateral pedal edema and mild ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] . • Some present with scrotal,labial edema n respiratory compromise.rarely there is diarrhoea secondary to edema of the bowel wall • Occasionlly,NS presents critically ill[slideshare.net] However, whether furosemide treatment affects massive proteinuria-induced TEC injury in patients with NS is unknown.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Abdominal examination elicited pain during superficial palpation on the right upper quadrant with hepatomegaly identification, with no signs of ascites.[austinpublishinggroup.com] Abdominal ultrasonography revealed liver parenchymal echo thickening; widening of the hepatic vein, the right hepatic vein, and the inferior vena cava; gallbladder wall edema[omicsonline.org] Ascites will be caused in severe cases, which will further lead to liver enlargement and impaired liver functioning. Other symptoms are jaundice and coagulopathy.[newhealthadvisor.com]

  • Anasarca

    The CT scan of the abdomen showed the presence of ascites. Ascitic fluid analysis confirmed it to be chylous ascites. Her prothrombin time, INR, and aPTT were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Over the past 6 months he gained 30 lbs with worsening lower extremity, abdominal wall, and scrotal edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was found to have advanced renal disease (stage 4) and a profound proteinuria of 82.9 g/day.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heart Failure

    A 50-year-old female patient presented at the clinic with the complaint of dyspnea and abdominal distention due to ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Proteinuria is a strong independent risk factor for decline in eGFR, regardless of diabetes status, and is associated with many of the same CVD risk factors as those for CKD[doi.org] 41-year-old female patient admitted to the Department of Cardiology with clinical signs of right heart failure: congested jugular veins, hepatomegaly, peripheral edema, ascites[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ascites

    ". [4] Signs and symptoms [ edit ] Mild ascites is hard to notice, but severe ascites leads to abdominal distension.[en.wikipedia.org] By examination : Tachycardia ,Tachypnea ,Hypertension ,cyanosis, jaundice, clubbing of fingers ,limb edema ,Hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, dilated abdominal wall veins.[clinicaltrials.gov] The ascites formation persisted despite exclusion of a surgical complication, fully functioning kidney and pancreas allografts, lack of any significant proteinuria, normalization[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Ascites

    Malignant ascites accounts for only 10% of all cases of ascites. 80% cases of malignant ascites are secondary to epithelial malignancies of the breast, ovaries, endometrium[symptoma.com] Hypertension (grade IV), hand-foot syndrome (grade I) and proteinuria (grade II) were observed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ascites); Group 2, patient with ascites due to non-portal hypertensive etiology (low-gradient ascites).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Inferior Vena Cava Syndrome

    This obstruction is debilitating due to the development of ascites and anasarca.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In addition, if the thrombus is confined to the cava and does not involve the iliac or femoral system, the collateral pathways form along the posterior abdominal wall.[emedicine.medscape.com] Proteinuria can be associated with these symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Protein Losing Enteropathy

    , abdominal fullness recurred and CT revealed an enlarging tumor and increasing ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Circumferential bowel wall thickening due to submucosal edema was documented in 10 (76.9%) of 13 patients.[journals.plos.org] The diagnosis of lupus was established based on the presence of lymphopenia, proteinuria, ANA, and positive autoantibodies (anti-Sm, anti-DNA, and anti-Ro).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Intestinal Perforation

    Tuberculous peritonitis is one of the most common causes of exudative ascites, especially in the young, and is an important cause of extra-pulmonary disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory investigations showed proteinuria, hematuria with red cell casturia and azotemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Malar rash, sensitivity to sunlight, serositis, renal disease (proteinuria, cellular cylenders), anxiety-depression, and anaemia were the positive findings of our case.[bioline.org.br]

  • Meigs Syndrome

    Immediate effects such as thrombosis or bowel wall edema are followed by translocation of bacterial products, leading to additional fluid accumulation, which further increases[emedicine.medscape.com] Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome accompanied by massive ascites in uterine leiomyoma is rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Our patient did have lupus nephritis but with non-nephrotic range proteinuria. Also, there was no evidence of constrictive pericarditis on echocardiogram.[aap.confex.com]
