380 Possible Causes for Ascites, Hypovolemic Shock

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    shock .[] 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.[]

  • Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

    shock, ascites, and pleural and pericardial effusions. 5 This acute shift produces hypovolemia, which may result in multiple organ failure, hemoconcentration (hematocrit[] Twelve patients with OHSS and ascites were included in the study.[] The massive extravascular exudation can cause tense ascites, pleural and pericardial effusion, hypovolemic shock, oliguria, electrolyte imbalance (hyponatremia and hyperkalemia[]

  • Acute Peritonitis

    Untreated hypovolemia can result in decreased cardiac output, and, ultimately, hypovolemic shock. 1 In addition to fluid shifts, foreign substances such as feces and mucus[] The treatment failed to slow the progress of the disease, and massive ascites appeared with thickening of the gallbladder wall.[] Prevalence SBP: In asymptomatic patients with cirrhosis and ascites, the prevalence is 3 ).[]

  • Meigs Syndrome

    Akahira J, Ito K, Nakamura R, Jajima A (1998) Massive intraperitoneal hemorrhage and hypovolemic shock due to rupture of a coronary vessel of a uterine leiomyoma: a report[] 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.[]

  • Portal Hypertension

    Patients present with sudden hematemesis and melena , as well as hypovolemic shock in some cases.[] 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[] Chylous ascites as a consequence of acute pancreatitis is very rare.[]

  • Panhypopituitarism

    shock due to increased vascular permeability.[] Liver ultrasound findings were compatible with chronic liver disease, portal hypertension, and ascites [Figure 1] .[] […] main cause of morbidity; the most dangerous complications are adrenal crises, which occur if cortisol levels do not meet the body’s acute demand [ 5 ], possibly leading to hypovolemic[]

  • Hemoperitoneum

    Hemoperitoneum with hypovolemic shock from avulsion of a pedunculated leiomyoma is a rare but highly fatal condition that can occur spontaneously or as a result of trauma.[] Ascites with right pleural effusion initially suggested fetal hydrops.[] We excluded 28 patients who only received medical treatment, 15 patients who underwent surgery by laparotomy for severe hypovolemic shock, and 30 patients who presented with[]

  • Pseudomembranous Colitis

    Complications Hypovolemic shock, dehydration, and electrolytes depletion may occur.[] We discuss the possible mechanisms leading to ascites formation in this condition and review ascitic fluid characteristics in patients with PMC.[] Her clinical course was particularly stormy and was characterized by severe diarrhea and vomiting, profuse ascites, pleural effusion, abdominal tenderness, peritoneal irritation[]

  • Hepatic Rupture

    Hemodynamic instability and signs of hypovolemic shock appear in about one third of cases[ 8 ].[] Hemorrhagic ascites due to metastatic liver tumor is rare and the sudden onset of abdominal symptoms is an indicator of rupture.[] The actual event of hepatic rupture is heralded by hemorrhagic or hypovolemic shock. In the absence of shock, the diagnosis is usually missed [2].[]

  • Addisonian Crisis

    Addison's Disease Acute adrenal crisis (Addisonian Crisis / Acute Adrenal Insufficiency) Hypovolemic Shock What are the symptoms of Addison’s disease and an adrenal crisis[] Congestive heart failure (CHF) and cirrhosis with ascites are exceptions that cause progressive sodium retention.[] shock, profound hypoglycemia, confusion, altered mental status, ventricular dysrhythmias, GI (N/V, diarrhea, anorexia, cramps), hyperpigmentation of the skin pts usually[]
