106 Possible Causes for Anemia, Cataract, Plasma Fibrinogen Increased

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    Hemolytic anemia with reduction of haptoglobin and cold agglutinin was detected, and the patient had a negative Donath-Landsteiner test.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] "Comparator subject had less risk for developing cataracts than patients with PMR, but rates of other comorbidities were similar.[medpagetoday.com] An 83-year-old man presented with anemia, hyper-sedimentation, and pitting edema of the back of the hands.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia (TRMA) syndrome is an autosomal recessive inherited disorder characterised by a triad of megaloblastic anemia, diabetes mellitus,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Considering this, we reviewed the principles and guidelines of managing cataract in patients with diabetes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Quantitative changes in coagulation factors in patients with diabetes involve higher plasma levels of fibrinogen (the soluble precursor of solid fibrin), coagulation factor[nature.com]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    We call this interrelationship between congestive heart failure, chronic kidney insufficiency, and anemia the Cardio-Renal Anemia syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] taking prednisone for long periods of time, these effects can be significant, including weight gain (especially around the face and trunk), moodiness, sleep disturbances, cataracts[kidshealth.org] In conclusion, the increased risk of thrombosis in patients with renal failure is related to changes in the coagulation cascade with increased levels of fibrinogen and plasma[academic.oup.com]

  • Temporal Arteritis

    It presents with headache, fever, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, long term use can lead to complications including high blood pressure, cataracts and glaucoma. In this case, the benefits far out-weigh the risks.[kadrmaseyecare.com] Neurological examination disclosed chin hypoesthesia while investigations showed a normocytic anemia, ESR of 100, and CRP of 72.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents have been used to treat anemia, one of the extra-articular manifestations of RA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Surgically induced scleritis is a rare complication following ophthalmologic surgery such as cataract surgery, pterygium excision, strabismus surgery, and retinal detachment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Prothrombotic state RA is associated with increased plasma levels of fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, and plasminogen activator inhibitor 1, producing a prothrombotic state[web.archive.org]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Anemia is a common finding in children with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The most frequent forms of damage were cataracts (11.9%), and avascular necrosis (unilateral and bilateral combined 10.2%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Posterior subcapsular cataracts and secondary open-angle glaucoma are common AE of the prolonged GC administration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pemphigus

    None of the patients showed any clinical sign of systemic lupus erythematosus, AIH, primary biliary cirrhosis, autoimmune atrophic gastritis, or pernicious anemia.[e-ijd.org] […] mellitus (adjusted odds ratio [95% confidence interval]: 5.68 [2.93-11.02]), hypertension (2.15 [1.25-3.71]), osteopenia (10.07 [3.72-27.25]), osteoporosis (4.19 [1.50-11.73]), cataracts[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Moreover, post-cataract laser surgery, burns, radiation therapy, and physiotherapy were also shown to induce pemphigus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Radiation Exposure

    Anemia develops slowly, because preexisting RBCs have a longer life span than WBCs and platelets.[merckmanuals.com] This case report supports experimental and epidemiological evidence implicating ultraviolet radiation as a risk factor for cataract formation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Overall, there is not conclusive evidence that the threshold dose for cataract formation should be reduced to 0.5 Gy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hodgkin Lymphoma

    The survival of autotransfused Cr 51 -tagged erythrocytes was shortened in a group of five patients with the anemia of Hodgkin’s disease, but since the normal marrow is believed[bloodjournal.org] People who undergo radiation or who are on long-term steroid therapy have an increased risk for cataracts.[mountsinai.org] B symptoms were observed in 57.6% of the patients, hepatosplenomegaly--in 30.6%, anemia--in 27.1% and elevated serum lactat dehydrogenase (LDH)--in 41.2%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Precursor-Cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    Acute leukemias affect immature cells; the disease develops rapidly, with symptoms including anemia, fever, bleeding, and swelling of the lymph nodes.[britannica.com] Cataracts can usually be successfully treated using surgery. See the Health A-Z topics about Cataracts and Cataract surgery for more information.[hse.ie] […] children affected by acute lymphoblastic leukemia, TTP is a potentially fatal illness that should be considered in the differential diagnosis of thrombocytopenia with hemolytic anemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
