193 Possible Causes for Ascites, Secondary Aldosteronism

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chylous ascites as a consequence of acute pancreatitis is very rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] 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[derangedphysiology.com]

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    Examination revealed bilateral pedal edema and mild ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] signs may develop, including peripheral edema and ascites.[merckmanuals.com] Consider nephrotic syndrome in patients, particularly young children, with unexplained edema or ascites.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Heart Failure

    41-year-old female patient admitted to the Department of Cardiology with clinical signs of right heart failure: congested jugular veins, hepatomegaly, peripheral edema, ascites[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This case highlights the importance of investigating secondary causes of hypertension in young patients and the potential adverse cardiac effects of primary aldosteronism[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other common symtoms include continous cough, increased urinal urge especially at night, ascites, sudden weight gain, concentration difficulties, increased blood pressure[symptoma.com]

  • Lipoid Nephrosis

    The fluid shift progresses and eventually causes abdominal swelling from ascites, respiratory difficulty from pleural effusion, and generalized edema. anasarca (severe generalized[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] In severe cases, fluid can shift into the peritoneal cavity (abdomen) and cause ascites .[en.wikipedia.org] Hypovolemic shock typically occurs during the edema-forming phase of relapse and may be precipitated by diarrhea, sepsis, drainage of ascitic fluid, or the use of diuretics[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Physical examination revealed S4, bilateral pretibial edema, and moderate amount of ascites.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Right upper quadrant sonogram revealed hepatomegaly of 15 cm, trace amount of perihepatic ascites, pericholecystic fluid, and also thickened edematous gallbladder wall with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fluid can also accumulate within the liver causing it to swell (hepatomegaly) and within the abdominal cavity ( ascites ).[medicinenet.com]

  • Presinusoidal Portal Hypertension

    […] stage characterized by ascites, together with increasing jaundice and anemia.[annals.org] Upon physical exploration, clinical signs of ascites were found.[elsevier.es] […] the anemic stage in which hypersplenism was the only finding; the transitional stage characterized by jaundice and disturbed gastrointestinal function; and, finally, the ascitic[annals.org]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Ovary

    Positive peritoneal or ascitic cytology, the presence of residual tumor, more than 100 ml ascites were demonstrated to have the significant impact on survival by univariate[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A new cell line (TAYA) was established from ascites of a patient with clear cell adenocarcinoma of the ovary, and the sensitivity of the cell line to various anticancer drugs[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Normal cells purified from the malignant ascites did not show such amplification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
