2,943 Possible Causes for Ascites

  • Appendicitis

    […] appendiceal wall thickening and enhancement) and of indirect signs of appendicitis (periappendiceal fat stranding, periappendiceal abscess, bowel obstruction, free air or ascites[doi.org] Comorbidities included diabetes mellitus, renal disease, dyspnea, ascites, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, current pneumonia, ventilator dependence, long-term steroid[doi.org]

  • Influenza

    Precautions over inhibitors were not necessary because little or no inhibitor activity was detected in mouse ascitic fluid.[doi.org] 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[doi.org]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

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

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

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

  • Meigs Syndrome

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

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

  • 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[symptoma.com] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ascites); Group 2, patient with ascites due to non-portal hypertensive etiology (low-gradient ascites).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chylous Ascites

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

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Reported here is a favorable outcome of chronic ascites in an elderly, frail alcoholic treated by paracentesis and intravenous reinfusion of ascitic fluid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In three patients (15.78%), the ascitic fluid culture was positive.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
