33 Possible Causes for Blood in Stool, Burr Cell, Polycythemia

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    A probe is inserted to the tumor through a burr hole in the skull. The laser catheter is guided with real-time MRI.[] D45 Polycythemia vera D46 Myelodysplastic syndromes D47 Other neoplasms of uncertain behavior of... D48 Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of other ...[] Tests include colonoscopy and tests for blood in the stool. Treatments for colorectal cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination.[]

  • Acquired Idiopathic Sideroblastic Anemia

    Anemia of Chronic Renal Disease blood picture: Usually normocytic/normochromic, decreased Hb, Burr cells Variable blood pictures: N/N with burr cells Macro/N with target cells[] ., anemia, polycythemia" 在某些疾病会造成红血球形状(如︰恶性贫血、镰状细胞性贫血)或数量(如贫血和红血球增多症)的改变。[] Should be considered more strongly for patients with recurrent unexplained iron deficiency after adequate primary therapy and for all patients with occult blood positive stools[]

  • Microcytosis

    Burr cells l Irregular asymmetric projections, small cells or fragments l Found in uremia 11.[] In polycythemia, iron deficiency counterbalances the abnormally increased RBC production, and the opposing conditions result in a targeted (usually normal) hemoglobin level[] They may run blood tests to check for celiac disease. They may test your blood and stool for H. pylori bacterial infection.[]

  • Paroxysmal Cold Hemoglobinuria

    RBC survival may be shortened in renal failure (burr cells) and in liver disease (acanthocytes and target cells).[] Polycythemia relative versus absolute20 Polyneuropathy40 Polyneuropathy demyelinating2 Polyneuropathy druginduced40 Polyneuropathy symmetric40 Polyuria Portal hypertension1[] Urine analysis was negative for red blood cells. Stool for occult blood was negative.[]

  • Folate-Deficiency Anemia

    This test may be used to help determine the cause of anemia, polycythemia (high red blood cell count), or other bone marrow disorders.[] […] and stool samples at baseline and at 3 and 12 months following the implementation of the program.[] Increased EPO levels may be due to secondary polycythemia, an overproduction of red blood cells that occurs in response to an event such as low blood-oxygen levels.[]

  • Red Blood Cell Disorder

    Burr Cells: Liver disease Renal disease Severe burns Bleeding gastric ulcers Maybe artifact Echinocyte (Burr Cell) Acanthocyte vs Echinocyte Howell-Jelly: are intracellular[] Alternative Names Primary polycythemia; Polycythemia rubra vera; Myeloproliferative disorder; Erythremia; Splenomegalic polycythemia; Vaquez's disease; Osler's disease; Polycythemia[] Blood in the urine or stool is usually not caused by a blood disorder. Some symptoms are more suggestive of a blood disorder.[]

  • Posthemorrhagic Anaemia of the Newborn

    Other findings include burr cells (uremia), spherocytes (hereditary spherocytosis, autoimmune hemolysis, G6PD deficiency), elliptocytes (hereditary elliptocytosis), schistocytes[] Nephrogenous polycythemia Polycythemia due to erythropoietin Polycythemia due to fall in plasma volume Polycythemia due to high altitude Polycythemia due to stress Polycythemia[] Secondary diagnoses include acute post hemorrhagic anemia and blood in stool (melena). (Melena is not inherent to colon malignancy).[]

  • Severe Congenital Hypochromic Anemia with Ringed Sideroblasts

    Echinocytes (Burr Cells): resemble burrs Elliptocytes/Ovalocytes: elliptical or oval-shaped cells Keratocytes (Horn Cells): resemble horns Microspherocytes: smaller Macrocytes[] Should be considered more strongly for patients with recurrent unexplained iron deficiency after adequate primary therapy and for all patients with occult blood positive stools[] Primary absolute polycythemia Abnormal regulation of the multipotent hematopoietic stem cells Polycythemia vera Secondary absolute polycythemia Increase in erythropoietin[]

  • Gaisbock's Syndrome

    They may be artefactual - see Crenated cells - or pathological - see Burr cells above.[] This conversion is inhibited by liver disease, vitamin B12 deficiency, and drugs such as .. termed stress erythrocytosis, Gaisbock39s syndrome, and spurious polycythemia Schilling[] […] see Faecal occult blood positive Guaifenesin see Guaiacol glyceryl ether Guaiphenesin see Guaiacol glyceryl ether Guam disease see Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-parkinsonism[]

  • Anemia

    Burr cells accompany renal failure and spur cells accompany severe liver disease.[] These may include: A fecal occult blood test (FOBT), which looks for blood in stool samples. A colonoscopy .[] The RBC count is done to determine if the number of red blood cells is low (anemia) or high ( polycythemia ).[]
