232 Possible Causes for Ascites, Massive Splenomegaly

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    Here we report a rare case of PMF with anemia, small bowel obstruction and ascites due to extramedullary hematopoiesis and portal hypertension.[] She also underwent splenectomy when she was 13 years old, due to massive splenomegaly, anemia and various infection disease episodes.[] Severe acute liver dysfunction occurred following transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) creation in a patient with massive ascites due to portal hypertension[]

  • Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria

    We describe a patient under treatment with the anti-complement antibody eculizumab who developed pancytopenia, requiring blood transfusions, due to massive splenomegaly.[] A PVS is a treatment option for ascites due to BCS.[] Depending on their localization, thromboses (which affect 30-40 % of untreated patients) may manifest as abdominal pain, hepatomegaly, ascites and headaches.[]

  • Portal Vein Thrombosis

    Peritoneal tuberculosis can present with unusual manifestations such as portal vein thrombosis and transudative ascites causing a diagnostic dilemma.[] The splenectomy was performed in other services, before the PVT diagnosis, due to the massive splenomegaly and severe hypersplenism.[] On examination she had pallor and massive splenomegaly.[]

  • Presinusoidal Portal Hypertension

    […] stage characterized by ascites, together with increasing jaundice and anemia.[] Massive splenomegaly ( 10 cm below the left subcostal margin)-present in 95 % of patients. Dilated superficial abdominal veins- in15 %.[] Portal hypertension may also occur in massive splenomegaly or AV fistulas due to increased blood flow.[]

  • Hepatosplenic Amyloidosis

    Splenectomy may be justified in the case of massive splenomegaly, infarction, or disabling symptoms of pain and compression of neighboring structures.[] Ascitic fluid may be tapped and drawn for differential analysis.[] Computed tomography demonstrates characteristic massive splenomegaly.[]

  • Budd-Chiari Syndrome

    A PVS is a treatment option for ascites due to BCS.[] Causes of Portal Hypertension Prehepatic Portal vein thrombosis Splenic vein thrombosis Massive splenomegaly Intrahepatic Schistosomiasis Congenital hepatic fibrosis Cirrhosis[] CLINICAL FEATURES SYMPTOMS  ABDOMINAL PAIN & DISTENTION  ANOREXIA  JAUNDICE SIGNS  MASSIVE ASCITES (83- 100%)  HEPATOMEGALY  COLLATERALS  SPLENOMEGALY  JAUNDICE []

  • 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[] We performed LS in 83 patients with massive splenomegaly ( 30 cm) secondary to portal hypertension and liver cirrhosis.[] IPH and EHPVO are both characterized by normal hepatic venous pressure gradient, moderate to massive splenomegaly with preserved liver synthetic functions.[]

  • Gaucher Disease

    Large volume lymphadenopathy inevitably provokes concern about the possibility of malignancy, but in a patient with Gaucher disease-particularly with significant ascites and[] HALS for GD patients with refractory hypersplenism and massive splenomegaly is safe and feasible in experienced hands.[] The gastrointestinal features include hepatosplenomegaly, jaundice , hepatic (liver) failure, and ascites (fluid in the abdomen).[]

  • Hypersplenism

    Left-sided pleural effusion and increase in amount or new development of ascites occurred in six and five patients, respectively.[] Our results demonstrate that shunt surgery with partial resection of the spleen is effective and safe for pediatric patients with massive splenomegaly and severe hypersplenism[] […] with many complications, including intermittent fever, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, post-embolization syndrome, splenic abscess, splenic rupture, pneumonia, refractory ascites[]

  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia

    Adenosine deaminase of ascitic fluid was 19 IU/L.[] Case report. 41M with WM, massive splenomegaly.[] There was also mild hepatomegaly but no splenomegaly or ascites. Rest of the abdominal exam was unremarkable. Also, examination of other systems was unremarkable.[]
