146 Possible Causes for Acalculous Cholecystitis, Hepatomegaly

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    The patient showed severe hepatomegaly incidentally, and dual positivity of Immunoglobulin (Ig) M to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) viral capsid antigen (VCA) and cytomegalovirus[] Epstein-Barr virus infectious mononucleosis associated with acute acalculous cholecystitis. Infection . 2007 Apr. 35(2):118-9. [Medline] . Lai PK, Alpers MP.[] Although the complaints at admission did not differ between these two patient groups, the incidence of clinical signs (tonsillopharyngitis, lymphadenopathy, hepatomegaly,[]

  • Typhus

    The most common CT finding was hepatomegaly (74.4%), followed by splenomegaly (66.7%).[] Scrub typhus may have gastrointestinal presentations, such as acute acalculous cholecystitis, duodenal ulcer perforation, peritonitis and gastric ulceration.[] One enlarged lymph node in the right axilla and hepatomegaly were elicited. Weil-Felix reaction Ox-K was positive with 1:360 dilution.[]

  • Brucellosis

    Physical examination of the patient revealed massive hepatomegaly.[] Brucellosis is a multisystem infection found worldwide that has a broad range of characteristics, which range from acute fever and hepatomegaly to chronic infections that[] The most frequent admission symptoms and findings of the patients with pancytopenia were fever (75%), fatigue (50%), splenomegaly (75%), and hepatomegaly (41%).[]

  • Q Fever

    Hepatitis may cause abnormal enlargement of the liver (hepatomegaly). More rarely, it can cause yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes (jaundice).[] We report a case of Q fever-related antiphospholipid syndrome in a patient presenting with acalculous cholecystitis and pneumonia.[] We describe a case of Q fever associated with the transient presence of antiphospholipid antibodies in a 9-year-old boy presenting with acalculous cholecystitis and splenic[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Glycogenic hepatopathy is a rare condition that causes significant hepatomegaly and elevated liver enzyme levels in uncontrolled type 1 diabetic patients.[]

  • Fascioliasis

    Because F. hepatica has a special tropism for the liver, abdominal pain, hepatomegaly, and constitutional symptoms are among the most common manifestations of acute-stage[] Computed tomography of the abdomen showed hepatomegaly (N 9), track-like hypodense lesions with subcapsular location (N 8), and subcapsular hematoma (N 2).[] Abdominal pain, anemia, eosinophilia, and tender hepatomegaly were seen in 70%, 80%, 70%, and 10%; respectively.[]

  • Gallbladder Carcinoma

    Ultrasound of the abdomen revealed hepatomegaly with thick-walled gallbladder with multiple stones and a mass at the fundus, but normal uterus and ovary.[] Acalculous cholecystitis Acute acalculous cholecystitis mainly occurs in critically ill patients, presumably due to increased bile viscosity from fasting and medication that[] Because in critically ill patients gallbladder abnormalities are frequently found secondary to systemic disease (see below), acalculous cholecystitis can be difficult to diagnose[]

  • Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever

    She had high, prolonged fever for five days, hepatomegaly, thrombocytopenia and a right pleural effusion.[] However, ultrasound scanning was suggestive of acute acalculous cholecystitis.[] The mother had fever for a total of 6 days, along with hepatomegaly, hepatic dysfunction and thrombocytopenia. Serology showed acute secondary dengue infection.[]

  • Gallbladder Sludge

    […] ultrasound was performed at our hospital and revealed a gallbladder wall thickness (9.3 mm), gallbladder sludge in the gallbladder lumen, pancreatic edema, ascites, and hepatomegaly[] Acute acalculous cholecystitis developed in four patients (7.1%) from 6.5 to 37.5 mo after the first examination.[] Acalculous cholecystitis is a condition when there is inflammation of the gallbladder but no gall stones. In such a case, immediate surgery is the only alternative.[]

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

    Abdominal ultrasound detects hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, abscesses and enlarged lymph nodes, if present.[] The initial manifestation was masked by fluoroquinolone monotherapy, and subsequently complicated by acalculous cholecystitis and immune restoration syndrome after antiretroviral[] Pyrexia, hepatomegaly, evidence of weight loss and adventitious chest sounds were the commonest physical signs.[]
