1,115 Possible Causes for Ascitic Fluid

  • Malignant Ascites

    fluid CRP were associated with malignant ascites.[] Only three patients had positive ascitic fluid cultures.[] We report a case in which EGFR exon 20 T790M mutation was detected by repeat ascitic fluid examination.[]

  • Meigs Syndrome

    Cytomorphologic study of both the tumour and ascitic fluid was negative for malignancy.[] The fluids that collect within the pleura and the peritoneum can either be transudative or exudative. Both pleural and ascitic fluids tend to have a similar composition.[] Nature of the ascitic and pleural fluid: Ascitic fluid and pleural fluid in Meigs syndrome can be either transudate or exudate.[]

  • Angioedema

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The aims of this study are to update the clinician on current understanding of angioedema as it presents in the pediatric population and to review proper diagnostic techniques and treatment modalities for various types of angioedema. RECENT FINDINGS: Angioedema is still best classified by[…][]

  • Spontaneous Bacterial Peritonitis

    Low-protein-concentration ascitic fluid predisposes to spontaneous bacterial peritonitis.[] RESULTS: In 105 cases of ascitic fluid analyses, 27 (25.72%) had positive ascitic fluid culture whereas 78 (74.28%) had negative ascitic fluid culture.[] Both were positively correlated with ascitic fluid proteins, PMN count, TNF-α, and IL-6.[]

  • Hereditary Angioedema

    See More Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a disease characterized by recurrent episodes (also called attacks) of severe swelling of the skin and mucous membranes. 0002027 Ascites[] Large fluid shifts with ascites or hypovolaemic shock may occur. For pictures of angio-oedema, see DermNet NZ reference [ 4 ].[] Accumulation of fluid in the abdomen 0001541 Facial edema Facial puffiness Facial swelling [ more ] 0000282 Intestinal edema 0005225 Intestinal obstruction Bowel obstruction[]

  • Ascites

    However, ascitic fluid cytology was negative for malignant cells. A differential diagnosis of tubercular mass was made.[] In ascitic fluid, a PMN count of 250 cells/ μ L indicates SBP, whereas bloody fluid can suggest a tumor or TB.[] The ascitic fluid analysis showed 921 cells/mm3 with mononuclear predominance (93.6%), elevated total proteins and a slightly elevated serum-ascites albumin gradient.[]

  • Pancreatic Ascites

    Reported here is a favorable outcome of chronic ascites in an elderly, frail alcoholic treated by paracentesis and intravenous reinfusion of ascitic fluid.[] Ascites fluid is known to be important in the clinical progression of AP.[] In all patients ascites was exudative and the ascitic fluid amylase was markedly elevated (mean /- SD: 7815 /- 6507 SU/dl).[]

  • Hereditary Angioedema Type 1

    Large fluid shifts with ascites or hypovolaemic shock may occur. For pictures of angio-oedema, see DermNet NZ reference [ 4 ].[] Substantial fluid accumulation in the intestinal wall and lumen and in the peritoneal cavity will cause intestinal wall swelling and ascites.[] In rare cases, hypovolemic shock may occur due to the volume of fluid migration[ 16 ].[]

  • Hepatitis C

    Signs of severe liver scarring (cirrhosis) may include: Ascites (accumulation of fluid and swelling of the abdominal cavity) Star-shaped vein pattern developing on the swollen[] The following symptoms may occur with hepatitis C infection: Pain in the right upper abdomen Abdominal swelling due to fluid ( ascites ) Clay-colored or pale stools Dark urine[]

  • Chylous Ascites

    Ascitic fluid analysis revealed chylous ascites (triglycerides 444 mg/dl) with negative microbiological tests.[] fluid protein/Serum Protein 0.5 Ascitic Fluid LDH/Serum LDH 0.6 Ascitic Fluid LDH 400 Presence of any 2 of these three findings is usually associated with TB, Malignancy[] This patient was treated with amphotericin B for 3 mo, while receiving concomitant therapy with an efavirenz-containing antiretroviral regimen, but cultures in ascitic fluid[]
