313 Possible Causes for Anasarca, Ascites

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Excludes Applies To Congestive heart disease Right heart failure (secondary to left heart failure) ICD-9-CM Volume 2 Index entries containing back-references to 428.0 : Anasarca[] Physical examination revealed S4, bilateral pretibial edema, and moderate amount of ascites.[] This may lead to peripheral edema or anasarca and nocturia (frequent nighttime urination when the fluid from the legs is returned to the bloodstream).[]

  • Liver Cirrhosis

    The serum-ascites albumin gradient value of 1.9 g/dL and the total protein level in the ascites of 3.1 g/dL indicated the ascites to have been caused by portal hypertension[] […] with cirrhosis and ascites.[] Patients with ascites as first complication showed worse survival than patients who had ascites at diagnosis. (5-year survival 33% vs. 15%, HR 1.60 (95% CI 1.34-1.90)).[]

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    […] of thrombocytopenia, anasarca, fever, reticulin fibrosis, organomegaly (TAFRO) syndrome.[] Examination revealed bilateral pedal edema and mild ascites.[] […] signs may develop, including peripheral edema and ascites.[]

  • Lipoid Nephrosis

    The fluid shift progresses and eventually causes abdominal swelling from ascites, respiratory difficulty from pleural effusion, and generalized edema. anasarca (severe generalized[] The swelling may be mild but patients can present with edema in the lower half of the body, periorbital edema, swelling in the scrotal/labial area and anasarca in more severe[] Includes congenital nephrotic syndrome lipoid nephrosis Nephrotic syndrome Approximate Synonyms Congenital nephrotic syndrome Hypoxic nephrosis Nephrotic syndrome Renal anasarca[]

  • Myxedema

    Anasarca as a symptom of Myxedema Coma Hypothermia – The core temperature of the body is often reduced up to 26.6 degrees Celsius.[] Myxedema ascites is thus rare but easy to treat; it should be borne in mind, especially if the ascites fluid has a high protein content.[] Ascites is a rare but important complication of hypothyroidism.[]

  • Amyloidosis

    Anasarca is common in patients with nephrotic syndrome, particularly in association with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor administration.[] We report here a case of portal hypertension, ascites, and severe intrahepatic cholestasis as the initial presentation of hepatic amyloidosis and multiple myeloma, which followed[] Occasionally, portal hypertension may occur with oesophageal varices and ascites.[]

  • Systemic Amyloidosis

    These processes can progress to nephrotic syndrome with marked hypoalbuminemia, edema, and anasarca or to end-stage renal disease.[] In this study we attempted to document the clinical circumstances of the ascites and to analyze in detail special studies performed on the ascitic fluid.[] […] amyloidosis. 11, 19 Presentation varies from asymptomatic to a subtle decrease in exercise capacity to fatigue, dyspnea, and lower extremity edema to angina, syncope, ascites, and anasarca[]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    On exam, he had massive anasarca with edema prominent up to his chest. He had an additional heart sound and marked JVD.[] Ascites differential diagnosis and its association with constrictive pericarditis are briefly reviewed in this article.[] The symptoms of CP appear insidiously, with patients displaying peripheral edema, anasarca, and elevated right-sided heart pressures.[]

  • Hookworm Infection

    Patients might also present with peripheral edema or even anasarca, due to hypoproteinemia. Infected children exhibit growth retardation.[] […] result from hookworm infection include: Iron deficiency anemia , caused by loss of blood Nutritional deficiencies Severe protein loss with fluid buildup in the abdomen ( ascites[] Chronic protein loss can result in hypoproteinaemia and anasarca (widespread swelling of the skin due to effusion of fluid into the extracellular space).[]

  • Multicentric Castleman's Disease

    Case 1: A 57-year-old woman had fever, anemia, anasarca, and some small cervical lymphadenopathy.[] We herein describe an unusual case of multicentric Castleman's disease accompanied by thrombocytopenia, ascites, renal failure and myelofibrosis in a Japanese woman.[] However, thrombocytopenia, ascites, and edema persisted. The use of cyclosporine A successfully improved her condition, resulting in remission.[]
