19 Possible Causes for Ascites, Recent Increase in Alcohol Consumption, Splenomegaly

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    Abstract The pathogenesis, as well as the treatment, of edema and ascites in portal cirrhosis has been a subject of utmost interest and continuous investigation.[annals.org] Liver cirrhosis: Liver cirrhosis with an inhomogeneous liver with irregular contour and ascites and splenomegaly Liver cirrhosis: Liver cirrhosis with an irregular liver contour[ultrasoundcases.info] Hi there, My mom has been diagnosed with Cirrhosis and I've narrowed it down to being stage 4 based off of her having Portal Hypertension, Ascites.[healthunlocked.com]

  • Alcoholic Hepatitis

Ascites and hepatic encepalopathy are common in severe disease but varices are not common.[euroliver.org]

  • Fatty Liver

    These may initially include jaundice or a yellowish tinge to the skin and eyes, muscle wasting, hair thinning, abnormal skin blood vessels called spider angiomata, and splenomegaly[emedicinehealth.com] This delay in diagnosis is illustrated in our case of a 53-year-old man who presented with hepatic hydrothorax and ascites, whose workup revealed cirrhosis due to NAFLD.[doi.org] Splenomegaly with or without portal hypertension may occur with cirrhosis.[patient.info]

  • Gastritis

    Due to recurrent ascites requiring frequent paracenteses, and the clinical aggressiveness of the patient's underlying lymphoma, a second dose of rituximab was administered[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] positive (negative IgG), CMV viral load of 5700 copies/mL (real-time PCR); autoimmunity study showed antiparietal cell antibodies; abdominal ultrasonography detected homogenous splenomegaly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He described chronic gastritis as "Gastritide" and erroneously believed that gastritis was the cause of ascites, typhoid fever, and meningitis.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Hepatitis

    Undoubtedly these declines were caused in part by changes in alcohol consumption rates, but because the mortality rate decline began when consumption was still increasing,[web.archive.org] Drug induced hepatitis Drug induced liver disease Drug-induced cholestatic hepatitis Drug-induced disorder of liver Drug-induced hepatitis Granulomatous hepatitis Hepatic ascites[icd9data.com] Dehydration with drying of mucous membranes Telangiectasis (spider angiomata) and esophageal varices Jaundice Ascites Utricarial rashes Portal Hypertension Hepatomegaly and Splenomegaly[symptoma.com]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Recent findings High consumption of red meat does not increase risk of RA, whereas alcohol intake may be protective.[doi.org] He subsequently developed ascites. No liver pathology was found, but cardiac analysis including right heart catheterisation revealed constrictive pericarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is extremely rare for RA to present as FS or develop after initially presenting as neutropaenia and splenomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatitis C

    Even mild to moderate alcohol consumption has recently been shown to increase the prevalence of iron overload[ 110 ].[doi.org] […] at 24 755, hepatic encephalopathy at 16 430, sensitive ascites at 2450, moderate chronic hepatitis C at 155, and mild chronic hepatitis C at 145 per year per person.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Often, the first findings are signs of chronic liver disease (eg, splenomegaly, spider nevi, palmar erythema) or complications of cirrhosis (eg, portal hypertension, ascites[msdmanuals.com]

  • Hypertriglyceridemia

    The prevalance of hypertriglyceridemia has increased recently due to the changing eating habits, sedentary lifestyle, alcohol consumption, obesity and concomitant diabetes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The imagistic investigations showed ascites and paralytic ileus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The potential etiologies of splenomegaly vary with the patient’s age.[clinchem.aaccjnls.org]
