975 Possible Causes for Blood Urea Nitrogen Decreased, Diffuse Hepatic Steatosis, Pleural Effusion on Chest X-Ray

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    Laennec's cirrhosis, also known as portal cirrhosis, alcoholic cirrhosis, fatty cirrhosis, or atrophic cirrhosis, [1] is named after René Laennec, [2] a French physician and the inventor of the stethoscope. It is a disease of the liver in which the normal lobular architecture is lost, with fibrosis (scarring) and later[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Small-Cell Carcinoma of the Lung

    Metastasis from small-cell carcinoma of the lung (SCCL) has most frequently been found in the lymph nodes, bones, brain, and liver. We have reported a case of metastatic SCCL located in the uveal layer of both eyes (choroidal in one and iridic in the other), an extremely rare occurrence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Macronodular Cirrhosis

    On CT, an objective measurement using Hounsfield units of 48 on a noncontrast study is most accurate in diagnosing hepatic steatosis.[jaocr.org] Coarsened echotexture and changes of hepatic steatosis can be subjective ultrasound findings in chronic liver disease, often easier to delineate on cross-sectional CT and[jaocr.org] On ultrasound, the liver appears diffusely hyperechoic with internal reference made to the renal cortex and splenic parenchyma ( Figure 3 ).[jaocr.org]

  • Massive Hepatic Necrosis

    Clinical Course: Chest x-rays showed a right pleural effusion. Thoracentesis produced 750 cc of fluid, which was negative for malignant cells.[nap.edu] He had signs of a right pleural effusion. There was no abdominal mass or tenderness.[nap.edu]
