1,428 Possible Causes for Ascites, Pulmonary Embolism

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    We describe a case of acute chlamydial salpingitis with marked ascites and an adnexal mass that simulated a malignant neoplasm.[] Chlamydial infection may cause marked ascites and a palpable adenexal mass and should be considered whenever marked chronic inflammation with a lymphofollicular hyperplasia[]

  • Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria

    embolism, has not been studied.[] A PVS is a treatment option for ascites due to BCS.[] embolism, bilateral upper limbs thrombophlebitis, and a possible abdominal angina with a transient paralytic ileus.[]

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    There was no evidence of pulmonary embolism, aortic dissection, or ischemic heart disease. Laboratory findings for catecholamine surge were all within normal limits.[] […] during at least 3 days or any ascites requiring an invasive procedure comprising percutaneous puncture or drainage.[] Additionally, abdominal surgery can lead to blood clots in the legs, which can circulate to the lungs and cause a pulmonary embolism, a very serious and potentially fatal[]

  • Pericarditis

    Signs and symptoms of predominantly right heart failure were present with jugular venous distention, edema and ascites in 89%, 89% and 62% of the cases, respectively.[] […] or infarction Pulmonary embolism Chest pain Location Retrosternal Retrosternal Anterior, posterior or lateral Duration Hours to days Minutes (ischemia); hours (infarction[] […] that mimic heart failure may develop, including shortness of breath and edema (accumulation of fluid in the legs and abdomen), swelling in the abdomen because of fluid (ascites[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Physical examination revealed S4, bilateral pretibial edema, and moderate amount of ascites.[] Important history questions include acuity of onset (acute pulmonary embolism), presence of chest pain (due to cardiac ischemia, acute pulmonary embolism), recent blood loss[] Right upper quadrant sonogram revealed hepatomegaly of 15 cm, trace amount of perihepatic ascites, pericholecystic fluid, and also thickened edematous gallbladder wall with[]

  • Hepatic Vein Occlusion

    The syndrome may present in an acute form with upper abdominal pain, abdominal swelling, ascites and tender hepatomegaly or in a chronic form, mimicking cirrhotic ascites.[] Complications portal hypertension (with all consequences); nonalcoholic liver cirrhosis and failure; pulmonary embolism .[] All of them had abdominal pain, abdominal distention secondary to ascites, and massive hepatomegaly.[]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    EUS showed ascites in 27 (20%) patients, of whom 8 (29.6%) had PC.[] This can result in blot clots in the veins in the legs, called deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or, in some cases, blood clots that travel to the lungs (called a pulmonary embolism[] Thromboembolic disease Develops in about 10% of all patients; low molecular weight heparin is preferable to warfarin for treatment of pulmonary embolism.[]

  • Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome

    Twelve patients with OHSS and ascites were included in the study.[] There is an associated increased risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolisms (PE).[] Patients have an increased risk of developing deep venous thromboses and pulmonary embolisms.[]

  • Budd-Chiari Syndrome

    A PVS is a treatment option for ascites due to BCS.[] Early recognition and treatment for possible thrombotic complications of CD is critical to prevent potentially fatal events like pulmonary embolism or liver failure.[] No symptomatic pulmonary embolism occurred.[]

  • 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[] Chylous ascites as a consequence of acute pancreatitis is very rare.[] […] the ascitic fluid Information that can be obtained from ascitic fluid analysis Appearance - turbidity would be very suspicious for SBP Albumin - to calculate serum/ascites[]
