755 Possible Causes for Ascites, Leg Edema

  • 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.medscape.com]

  • Systemic Amyloidosis

    During this observation period, the level of IgE gradually increased and, at 2 years after the initial diagnosis, bilateral leg edema and ascites with marked hepatosplenomegaly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In this study we attempted to document the clinical circumstances of the ascites and to analyze in detail special studies performed on the ascitic fluid.[jamanetwork.com] Case report and management: We report a case in a 66-year-old patient with legs edema, inappetence and frothy urine for 2 weeks.[omicsonline.org]

  • Liver Cirrhosis

    A 65-year-old male with liver cirrhosis of alcoholic etiology was admitted to hospital with bilateral leg edema, ascites, and marked weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] As liver function decreases, fewer proteins such as albumin are produced resulting in fluid accumulation in the legs (edema) or abdomen (ascites).[liver.ca]

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    One month after oral prednisolone was started at 40 mg daily and tapered to 10 mg daily, he developed lower leg edema on both sides and marked proteinuria (10.8 g/day).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examination revealed bilateral pedal edema and mild ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The edema that is present in the legs may also be occurring in the kidney tissue itself and can interfere with the kidneys' ability to clean the blood.[healthcommunities.com]

  • Tricuspid Valve Stenosis

    In some cases, the patient experiences peripheral edema and hepatic congestion.[rosenfeldinjurylawyers.com] Nevertheless, patients who are diagnosed with the condition tend to present with the following symptoms: Fatigue Dyspnea Abdominal discomfort and ascites, due to systemic[symptoma.com] Systemic Lupus - Intracardiac wires - Prosthetic heart valve - Endocarditis Patient symptoms and Physical Examination: - signs and symptoms of MS- - Dyspena - Fatigue - ascites[quizlet.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Complications include swelling of the legs (edema), kidney problems and fluid in the lungs.[hopkinsmedicine.org] Physical examination revealed S4, bilateral pretibial edema, and moderate amount of ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Your child's neck veins will be examined for swelling, and legs will be checked for edema. Laboratory tests help confirm the diagnosis.[luriechildrens.org]

  • Peritoneal Metastasis

    The image intensity with increasing malignant ascites was significantly increased at days 7, 16, and 21.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The major side effect was leg edema, which was easily manageable with furosemide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ascites decreased in seven of nine patients with ascites, and oral intake improved in four of seven patients with an inadequate oral intake.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Intestinal Lymphangiectasia

    Malabsorption with inability to gain weight, and finally weight loss and formation of leg edema were associated with protein-losing enteropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary intestinal lymphangiectasia (PIL) is a rare disease of intestinal lymphatics presenting with hypoproteinemia, bilateral lower limb edema, ascites, and protein losing[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One patient had extensive ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Protein Losing Enteropathy

    A man in his late seventies was suffering from right-sided pleural effusion and worsening leg edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , abdominal fullness recurred and CT revealed an enlarging tumor and increasing ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 29-year-old female visited a hospital because of increasingly severe lower leg edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

    Other common signs and symptoms Fatigue Dizziness Fainting spells (syncope) Swelling in the ankles or legs (edema) Bluish lips and skin (cyanosis) Chest pain Racing pulse[daviddarling.info] Venous congestion and ascites-induced increased intra-abdominal pressure are essential regarding recurrent hospitalization, morbidity and mortality.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms of PH may include: Breathlessness Chest pain (also called angina pectoris) Dizziness Fainting (also called syncope) Loss of energy Swelling of the arms, legs, ankles[phassociation.org]
