55 Possible Causes for Abdominal Wall Edema, Ascites, Proteinuria

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    Examination revealed bilateral pedal edema and mild ascites.[] . • 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[] However, whether furosemide treatment affects massive proteinuria-induced TEC injury in patients with NS is unknown.[]

  • 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.[] Abdominal ultrasonography revealed liver parenchymal echo thickening; widening of the hepatic vein, the right hepatic vein, and the inferior vena cava; gallbladder wall edema[] Ascites will be caused in severe cases, which will further lead to liver enlargement and impaired liver functioning. Other symptoms are jaundice and coagulopathy.[]

  • 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.[] Over the past 6 months he gained 30 lbs with worsening lower extremity, abdominal wall, and scrotal edema.[] He was found to have advanced renal disease (stage 4) and a profound proteinuria of 82.9 g/day.[]

  • Heart Failure

    A 50-year-old female patient presented at the clinic with the complaint of dyspnea and abdominal distention due to ascites.[] 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[] 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[]

  • Ascites

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

  • 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[] Hypertension (grade IV), hand-foot syndrome (grade I) and proteinuria (grade II) were observed.[] ascites); Group 2, patient with ascites due to non-portal hypertensive etiology (low-gradient ascites).[]

  • Inferior Vena Cava Syndrome

    This obstruction is debilitating due to the development of ascites and anasarca.[] 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.[] Proteinuria can be associated with these symptoms.[]

  • Protein Losing Enteropathy

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

  • 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.[] Laboratory investigations showed proteinuria, hematuria with red cell casturia and azotemia.[] Malar rash, sensitivity to sunlight, serositis, renal disease (proteinuria, cellular cylenders), anxiety-depression, and anaemia were the positive findings of our case.[]

  • 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[] Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome accompanied by massive ascites in uterine leiomyoma is rare.[] Our patient did have lupus nephritis but with non-nephrotic range proteinuria. Also, there was no evidence of constrictive pericarditis on echocardiogram.[]
