2,009 Possible Causes for Anemia, Appendicitis

  • Sinusitis

    A 66-year-old male visited our hospital with anemia and general weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] because urgent care centers are designed primarily for non-urgent care, your wait time will be considerably lessened; you won’t have, for instance, a car accident victim or an appendicitis[fastmed.com] The patient was presumed to have iatrogenic aplastic anemia due to mushroom toxicity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    To date, there has been no report of co-infection of chicken anemia virus (CAV) with enteric virus in patients with acute gastroenteritis (AGE).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Four illustrative case histories are presented to emphasize the need for a high index of suspicion if diseases such as malaria, septicaemia or appendicitis are not to be missed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thrombocytopenia, microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, and acute renal failure are characteristic of HUS.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    An anemia-inducing substance (AIS) was found as a protein, with a molecular weight of 50,000 on SDS electrophoresis gel, that decreased the osmotic resistance of erythrocytes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 44-year-old man who had undergone an appendectomy for perforated appendicitis presented three years later with an abdominal wall mass.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory findings showed no abnormalities, except for a slightly elevated C-reactive protein value and iron deficiency anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Intermittent Porphyria

    A Chinese female patient with very typical AIP symptoms of severe abdominal pain, seizures, hypertension, and tachycardia, accompanied with hyponatremia, anemia, and hyperbilirubinemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] AIP can be confused with other causes of acute abdominal disorders such as appendicitis with peritonitis or nephrolithiasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The analysis of hematological and biochemical parameters during the second crisis showed anemia, leukocytosis, hyponatremia, mild hypokalemia, uremia and elevated C-reactive[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Schistosomiasis

    Heavy S. mansoni infections were found to be associated with increased baseline risk of anemia, although children with moderate or heavy intensity infections had lower risk[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Acute appendicitis is a frequent pathology with diverse causes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Children with chronic disease can suffer from anemia and malnutrition, which can contribute to lost days at school and pervasive learning disabilities.[imperial.ac.uk]

  • Abdominal Actinomycosis

    A 46-year-old female presenting with intermittent abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, transient bowel obstruction, weight loss (18 kg), anemia, and hypoalbuminemia was evaluated[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although the original clinical and radiological findings in this case were highly suggestive of acute appendicitis, abdominal actinomycosis should be in the differential for[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Similarly, common lab abnormalities including anemia and leukocytosis, were seen.[shmabstracts.com]

  • Ectopic Pregnancy

    At examination on admittance, our patient had a bad general condition with clinical anemia. She had an occlusive syndrome that had been evolving for 3 days.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other, less common causes of tubal obstruction or blockage include abdominal infections such as appendicitis, pelvic tumors, and scar tissue formation after abdominal surgery[health.howstuffworks.com] Blood and Bone marrow: MTX may cause anemia (low red blood cell count), leukopenia (low white blood cell count), and or thrombocytopenia (low platelet count).[ivf1.com]

  • Crohn's Disease

    Diarrhea Rectal bleeding Weight loss Arthritis Skin problems Fever Rectal bleeding may be serious and continuous enough to cause anemia (low red blood count).[genome.gov] Scherl cautions that appendicitis pain also occurs in this lower right quadrant, but appendicitis pain is sharp and acute, whereas Crohn's disease is chronic and intermittent[prevention.com] Common presenting symptoms include chronic diarrhoea, weight loss, and right lower quadrant abdominal pain mimicking acute appendicitis.[bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Amebiasis

    A case of amebic anemia in a 53-year-old Louisianian prompted us to report it, in order to create awareness of such cases occurring in the absence of foreign travel.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We report a case of appendicitis caused by amebiasis in a 45-year-old Japanese man. He presented to our hospital with bloody stools in June 1998.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Emaciation as well as anemia can happen in individuals with long-lasting infection. Often a large bulge or ameboma can form and block the intestine.[byebyedoctor.com]

  • Tubal Pregnancy

    The patient was hypotension, had anemia and signs of lower abdominal peritonitis. Initial diagnosis was tubal pregnancy with rupture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Conclusion Although the combination of ectopic pregnancy and acute appendicitis is quite rare, it is wise to rule out concurrent acute appendicitis in patients of ectopic[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] Postoperatively, iron therapy for anemia may be necessary during convalescence.[symptoma.com]
