34 Possible Causes for Anemia, Ascites, Diffuse Hepatic Steatosis

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is a widely used marker of glycemic control but can be affected by hemolytic anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] First, perfusion, iron overload, hepatic steatosis, liver inflammation and edema can confound the interpretation of diffusion parameters. 54 Second, DWI is sensitive to motion-related[dx.doi.org]

  • Chronic Liver Disease

    The cumulative incidence of ascites was examined in patients without ascites at baseline.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Various disorders of the hepatobiliary system can occur due to sickling in patients with sickle cell anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cutoff values for grading steatosis varied across studies included in the meta-analysis but were not less than 25 % for moderate to severe hepatic steatosis.[link.springer.com]

  • Macronodular Cirrhosis

    Ascitic fluid may be tapped and drawn for differential analysis.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] On CT, an objective measurement using Hounsfield units of 48 on a noncontrast study is most accurate in diagnosing hepatic steatosis.[jaocr.org] Perez-Atayde AR, Sirlin SM and Jonas M: Coombs-positive autoimmune hemolytic anemia and postinfantile giant cell hepatitis in children.[slideheaven.com]

  • Hepatitis

  • Hepatosplenic Amyloidosis

    Ascitic fluid may be tapped and drawn for differential analysis.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Chronic anemia Polycythemia vera Thalassemia What is abnormal in sickle cell anemia?[quizlet.com] Abnormal retention of lipids within hepatocytes Cholangitis Inflammation of bile ducts Reactive hepatitis Aspecific and mild inflammatory cell infiltrate of portal spaces[arthritis-research.biomedcentral.com]

  • Indian Childhood Cirrhosis

    Microscopy showed panacinar hepatitis, portal and pericellular fibrosis, and diffuse Mallory bodies in the absence of steatosis or significant cholestasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dyspnea and cyanosis on exertion are probably a consequence of severe anemia. Disease onset may also be sudden, with fever, clay-like stools, jaundice or coma.[symptoma.com] Among children admitted to a further double blind trial who had ICC but who had not yet developed jaundice or ascites 10 treated with penicillamine and 10 treated with penicillamine[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fatty Liver

    This delay in diagnosis is illustrated in our case of a 53-year-old man who presented with hepatic hydrothorax and ascites, whose workup revealed cirrhosis due to NAFLD.[doi.org] Also imperfect oxidation due to tuberculosis of the lungs, pernicious anemia, and chlorosis.[henriettes-herb.com] hepatic steatosis Wilson disease hepatic fatty infiltration diffuse hepatic steatosis focal hepatic steatosis Promoted articles (advertising)[radiopaedia.org]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    He subsequently developed ascites. No liver pathology was found, but cardiac analysis including right heart catheterisation revealed constrictive pericarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents have been used to treat anemia, one of the extra-articular manifestations of RA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abnormal retention of lipids within hepatocytes Cholangitis Inflammation of bile ducts Reactive hepatitis Aspecific and mild inflammatory cell infiltrate of portal spaces[doi.org]

  • Toxic Hepatitis

    Ascites appeared simultaneously and soon became quite massive. Hepatomegaly was recorded when ascites decreased. Liver function tests suggested cholestatic jaundice.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wood 4 studied 522 patients, 144 children and 378 adults, receiving sulfanilamide and found that 21 developed acute anemia.[annals.org] diffusely decreased parenchymal attenuation on noncontrast CT diffuse edematous change hepatic steatosis may be a cause (steatohepatitis) or a result of acute hepatitis possible[radiopaedia.org]

  • Hepatic Veno-Occlusive Disease

    KEY POINTS: • Ultrasonography with Doppler can help predict progression to VOD. • Gallbladder wall oedema and ascites are the independent predictors of progression to VOD.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 66-year-old woman with autoimmune hemolytic anemia developed hepatic veno-occlusive disease while being treated with immunosuppressive cyclophosphamide 100 mg/day in combination[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Diffuse hypoattenuation of the liver is consistent with hepatic steatosis.[erj.ersjournals.com]
