  • Influenza

    Precautions over inhibitors were not necessary because little or no inhibitor activity was detected in mouse ascitic fluid.[] T cells were depleted 1 d prior and 3 d after infection by intraperitoneal injection of 200 μl (0.3 mg) of 1:25 diluted ascites fluid of YTS 169 (α-CD8) and YTS 191 (α-CD4[]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    One year later he underwent splenectomy for hypersplenism; at surgery, mesenteric lymphadenopathy and chylous ascites were noted.[]

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Laboratory analysis revealed hyponatremia (122 mmol/L), while ascites fluid analysis showed no infection.[] Ascites and low HDL levels were independent risk factors for AI.[] Congestive heart failure (CHF) and cirrhosis with ascites are exceptions that cause progressive sodium retention.[]

  • Meigs Syndrome

    Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome accompanied by massive ascites in uterine leiomyoma is rare.[] Physical examination and ultrasound revealed massive ascites. Computed tomography confirmed ascites and laboratory investigations showed CA125 raised levels.[] An explorative laparotomy revealed a leiomyoma and ascites.[]

  • Portal Hypertension

    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[] Ascites, another important complication of advanced cirrhosis and severe portal hypertension, is sometimes refractory to treatment and is complicated by spontaneous bacterial[] KEYWORDS: Chylous ascites; Pancreatitis; Portal vein stent[]

  • Malignant Ascites

    Malignant ascites accounts for only 10% of all cases of ascites. 80% cases of malignant ascites are secondary to epithelial malignancies of the breast, ovaries, endometrium[] RESULTS: CEA, AFP and CA19-9 in both serum and ascites as well as CA125 in ascites were evidently higher in the malignant ascites group than in the benign ascites group (P[] ascites); Group 2, patient with ascites due to non-portal hypertensive etiology (low-gradient ascites).[]

  • Chylous Ascites

    The clinical data of the patients with postoperative chylous ascites were compared with those of the patients without chylous ascites.[] RESULTS: Chylous ascites occurred postoperatively in 28 of the 931 patients (3.0%).[] CONCLUSIONS: Treatment of refractory chylous ascites continues to be a major challenge.[]

  • Pancreatic Ascites

    We conclude that pancreatic ascites should be suspected in any patient with exudative ascites, especially chronic alcoholics and that ascitic fluid amylase should be routinely[] Reported here is a favorable outcome of chronic ascites in an elderly, frail alcoholic treated by paracentesis and intravenous reinfusion of ascitic fluid.[] The diagnosis of pancreatic ascites should be considered in patients with refractory ascites, and a combination of medical care and judicious surgery have contributed to an[]

  • Tuberculous Peritonitis

    RESULTS: Serum c-reactive protein (7.88 6.62 mg/dL vs 3.12 2.69 mg/dL, P 0.01), ascites adenosine deaminase (66.76 32.09 IU/L vs 13.89 8.95 IU/L, P 0.01), ascites lymphocyte[] In three patients (15.78%), the ascitic fluid culture was positive.[] BACKGROUND AND GOALS: Adenosine deaminase (ADA) levels are used for diagnosing tuberculosis in several locations and although many studies have evaluated ADA levels in ascitic[]
