657 Possible Causes for Anorexia, Erythrocytosis

  • Myeloproliferative Disease

    Signs and symptoms Patients may have a history of the following: Easy fatigability Anorexia, weight loss Abdominal discomfort and early satiety secondary to splenomegaly:[] These data suggest that erythrocytosis and granulocytosis in JAK2(V617F) mice are the net result of a complex interplay between cell intrinsic and extrinsic factors.[] The clinical picture in early stages is often nonspecific with symptoms including fatigue, weight loss and anorexia.[]

  • Polycythemia Vera

    […] nausea, diarrhea, fever, elevated liver function test results Renal disease Recombinant interferon alfa-2b (Intron A) Myelosuppressive Influenza-like symptoms, fatigue, anorexia[] Unexpectedly, the symptom of erythrocytosis disappeared after the surgery.[] This causes abdominal pain, abnormal feeling of fullness, and anorexia. Weight loss may result. Erythromelalgia is a syndrome specific to polycythemia vera.[]

  • Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

    The patient described in this case did not have any symptoms commonly seen in RCC, such as painless hematuria, weight loss, anorexia, fatigue, or anemia, despite the bulk[] Tumor cells may produce erythropoietin and provoke erythrocytosis.[] After 1st cycle, Gr III or Gr II AEs of interest were mainly asthenia, diarrhoea and anorexia. All pts but one showed tumour shrinkage.[]

  • Polycythemia Neonatorum

    […] conjunctivitis Inclusion: Ophthalmia neonatorum due to gonococcus D45 Polycythemia vera excludes: familial polycythemia (D75.0) secondary polycythemia (D75.1) D75.0 Familial erythrocytosis[] : D75.1 , R71 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code D75.1 Secondary polycythemia 2016 2017 2018 2019 Billable/Specific Code Applicable To Acquired polycythemia Emotional polycythemia Erythrocytosis[] H Nagy K, Pomucz J, Varga R, Szabó E, Soltész G Erythrocytosis and severe asphyxia: two different causes of neonatal myocardial infarction.[]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

    Some example problems that may arise include: Hair loss Seizures Edema, or swelling of the body's tissues Elevated platelet counts Fever Inflammation of the muscles Anorexia[] Erythrocytosis is common in cancers of the liver, kidney, adrenal glands, lung, thymus, and CNS as well as in gynecologic tumors and myosarcomas.[] Dysgeusia Anorexia Cachexia Rheumatologic Paraneoplastic arthropathies can present as rheumatic polyarthritis or polymyalgia, specifically in patients with myelomas; lymphomas[]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    Other symptoms include fatigue lethargy, loss of appetite, chest pain, cough, blood in cough, hoarseness of voice.[] One way the body compensates is to increase the ability of the blood to carry oxygen by increasing the number of red blood cells, a condition called secondary erythrocytosis[] Secondary Erythrocytosis Chronic cyanosis results in elevated renal production of erythropoietin, 51 thus promoting erythropoiesis and secondary erythrocytosis.[]

  • Liver Cirrhosis

    Symptom Assessment System, 65% of patients had evidence of pain, 58% had evidence of nausea, 10% had depression, 36% had anxiety, 48% had dyspnea, and 49% had symptoms of anorexia[] In addition, liver cancers can produce and release a number of substances, including ones that cause an increased in red blood cell count (erythrocytosis), low blood sugar[] Symptoms Cirrhosis may present with vague symptoms such as fatigue, malaise, anorexia, nausea and weight loss.[]

  • Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

    In case of advanced disease, patients may present constitutional symptoms like fatigue, fever, night sweats, loss of appetite and weight.[] Clear cell renal cell carcinoma is occasionally associated with erythrocytosis, hypothesized to result from tumoral production of erythropoietin.[] […] micro- or macroscopic hematuria occurs in 60% of patients Complete blood count (CBC) – patients may have anemia of chronic inflammation (normo- or microcytic), some have erythrocytosis[]

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    Case 3 This 69 year old male presented with dyspnea and loss of appetite of 2/52 duration.[] The laboratory findings showed leuko-and erythrocytosis, increased levels of urea-BUN (32 mmol/l) and creatinine (766 mmol/l) as well as uric acid (920 mmol/l).[] Scott LM, Tong W, Levine RL et al (2007) JAK2 exon 12 mutations in polycythemia vera and idiopathic erythrocytosis.[]

  • Alcoholic Liver Disease

    People who drink more than two alcoholic drinks per day are at risk of liver disorders, the most common symptoms of which include nausea, diarrhea, anorexia, abdominal pain[] In addition, liver cancers can produce and release a number of substances, including ones that cause an increased in red blood cell count (erythrocytosis), low blood sugar[] […] of appetite Nausea Weight gain due to ascites Additional symptoms associated with the disease: Abnormally dark or light skin Agitation Altered level of consciousness Bloody[]
