  • Anemia

    Burr cells accompany renal failure and spur cells accompany severe liver disease.[cancertherapyadvisor.com] Overperfusion with resultant disruption of the blood-brain barrier results in vasogenic edema, but not infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] brittle hair, and hair loss, especially near the outer edge of the eyebrows Brittle, dull, and thin nails Decreased sweating Swelling of the hands, face, and eyelids (called edema[verywell.com]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    A peripheral blood smear revealed burr cells and schistocytes, suggesting microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (MAHA).[kjim.org] Findings include peripheral edema, neck vein distention, hepatomegaly, and a parasternal lift. Diagnosis is clinical and by echocardiography.[merckmanuals.com] The presence of peripheral edema in cor pulmonale is almost invariably associated with hypercapnia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Post-Infectious Glomerulonephritis

    Laboratory evaluation revealed micro-angiopathic anaemia with burr cells, thrombocytopenia, elevated lactic dehydrogenase and low complement C3.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] About 14% presented with complications (pulmonary edema-6%, seizure-1%, dialysis requiring renal failure-7%) and 9% had comorbid illness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and hypertension Adults : may have atypical presentation with sudden hypertension, edema and elevated BUN; 60% recover, others develop rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Fetal Erythroblastosis

    Schistocytes, as a sign of disseminated intravascular coagulation and burr cells, are present, as well as neutropenia and thrombocytopenia.[symptoma.com] If there is extensive disseminated intravascular coagulation, schistocytes and burr cells may be observed and neutropenia and thrombocytopenia may occur.[patient.info] Pulmonary edema is rare because of normal fetal postnatal pulmonary hypertension.[virtualpediatrichospital.org]

  • Microangiopathic Hemolytic Anemia

    - schistocytes, “burr cells”, “helmet cells” and “triangle cells”. 6.[slideshare.net] These complications progressed despite cessation of chemotherapy, and all three patients died of noncardiogenic pulmonary edema precipitated in two cases by blood transfusions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] leak syndrome (SCLS) is a rare process characterized by acute and recurrent episodes of vascular leakage with severe hypotension, hypoalbuminemia, hemoconcentration and edema[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
