321 Possible Causes for Anasarca, Pleural Effusion

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    This resulted in a relapse of generalized anasarca, associated with massive proteinuria and hypoalbuminemia.[] Chest radiography and computed tomography scans revealed right pleural effusion and a mass in the right middle lung field, which were confirmed by a percutaneous lung biopsy[] 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 .[] Fluid accumulation may cause pleural effusions and decreased diffusing capacity.[] effusion and pericardial effusions); the heart may slow down and its ability to pump blood forward can be impaired; the gastrointestinal tract does not function well and[]

  • Lipoid Nephrosis

    The fluid shift progresses and eventually causes abdominal swelling from ascites, respiratory difficulty from pleural effusion, and generalized edema. anasarca (severe generalized[] Includes congenital nephrotic syndrome lipoid nephrosis Nephrotic syndrome Approximate Synonyms Congenital nephrotic syndrome Hypoxic nephrosis Nephrotic syndrome Renal anasarca[] In children, this often manifests after an upper respiratory tract infection, and presents as anasarca more commonly than in adults. [1] While the nature of the proteinuria[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    This may lead to peripheral edema or anasarca and nocturia (frequent nighttime urination when the fluid from the legs is returned to the bloodstream).[] A 79-year-old woman experienced episodic dyspnea with unilateral pleural effusion for 2 years.[] This causes swelling under the skin (termed peripheral edema or anasarca ) and usually affects the dependent parts of the body first (causing foot and ankle swelling in people[]

  • Systemic 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[] Persistent pleural effusions are not common in patients with primary systemic amyloidosis (AL).[] In a patient with anasarca, intravenous diuresis is often needed because absorption of diuretics may be impaired.[]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    Systemic venous congestion results in hepatic congestion, peripheral edema, ascites and sometimes anasarca, and cardiac cirrhosis.  Reduced cardiac output is a consequence[] Pleural effusion occurs in 44–50% of patients with CP [ 4 , 20 ].[] The patients experienced dyspnea with bilateral lower-limb edema and pleural effusion, suggesting right cardiac dysfunction.[]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    On exam, he had massive anasarca with edema prominent up to his chest. He had an additional heart sound and marked JVD.[] Chest X-ray showed cardiac enlargement and an opacity suggestive for pleural effusion.[] […] pericarditis consists of symptoms and signs of debilitating chronic right-side heart failure, such as lower leg edema, hepatic congestion with subsequent development of ascites, anasarca[]

  • Hypoalbuminemia

    Reported here is a severe case of infection with B. hominis that caused acute gastroenteritis with prolonged diarrhea, hypoalbuminemia and anasarca.[] Large effusions are associated with low serum albumin levels, which might be explained in part by a shift from blood to pleural fluid. albumin exudate pleural effusion parapneumonia[] We report here a 71-yr-old Japanese woman who presented with severe anasarca and hypoalbuminemia.[]

  • Multicentric Castleman's Disease

    Case 1: A 57-year-old woman had fever, anemia, anasarca, and some small cervical lymphadenopathy.[] Common symptoms included splenomegaly (13/20), renal dysfunction (11/21), interstitial pneumonia (7/21), pleural effusion and/or ascites (7/21), and thrombocytopenia (6/21[] However, severe thrombocytopenia persisted and she developed anasarca, ascites, and pleural effusion shortly thereafter.[]

  • Ascites

    A 65-year-old patient was admitted to our institution due to anasarca and pulmonary congestion, mimicking heart failure.[] The Dengue Score is a model for predicting pleural effusion and/or ascites and uses the hematocrit (Hct), albumin concentration, platelet count and aspartate aminotransferase[] […] patients might have similar physical exam findings to those with cirrhotics including spider angiomas, distended umbilical veins (caput medusa), sclera icterus, jaundice, anasarca[]
