11 Possible Causes for Cardiac Metastasis, Splenic Metastasis, Wasting Syndrome

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Many of the more malignant tumors are first discovered or made manifest through their metastasis and present hopeless problems at the time of diagnosis.[] -Look for Homer's syndrome and wasting of the small muscles of the hand. · Patient 2 has signs of pleural effusion on one side. · Patient 3 shows signs of unilateral collapse[] […] them to easy rupture and causing hemoptysis Dyspnea (25%) Extrinsic or intraluminal airway obstruction Activation of mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors in lungs due to cachexia[]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    There have not been any cases of splenic inflammatory pseudotumors presenting or evolving with metastasis.[] Angiogenesis inhibitors, such as sorafenib and axitinib, which target vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) signaling, are widely used for renal cell carcinoma, including metastasis[] Cachexia, defined as the presence of at least 1 of these findings, was noted in 35.3% of patients.[]

  • Skin Cancer

    BACKGROUND: To investigate the association of DNA nucleotide excision repair (NER) defects with neurological degeneration, cachexia and cancer, we performed autopsies on 4[] The clinical spectrum encompassed severe cachexia in the XP-A (XP12BE) patient, numerous skin cancers in the XP-A and two XP-C (XP24BE and XP1BE) patients and only few skin[]

  • Early-Stage Gastric Cancer

    We report a rare case of metachronous solitary splenic metastasis arising from early gastric cancer.[] Cancer recurrence was related to histology, LN metastasis, and LVI ( P .05, χ 2 test.).[] […] in the stomach from esophageal varices or at the anastomosis after surgery Intrahepatic jaundice caused by hepatomegaly Extrahepatic jaundice Inanition from starvation or cachexia[]

  • Colorectal Carcinoma

    Isolated splenic metastasis arising from a colorectal carcinoma is a rare finding.[] Here, we report a case of late cardiac metastasis from a primary colorectal carcinoma, which occurred more than 15 years after the initial surgery.[] Related signs that may be identified on general physical examination are cachexia, paleness, and jaundice.[]

  • Adrenal Gland Metastasis

    Adrenal metastases: Adrenal metastases of a melanoma on both sides Adrenal metastases: Bilateral adrenal, hepatic and splenic metastasis of a lung carcinoma Adrenal metastases[] Table 1: Cases of cardiac metastasis from esophageal cancer.[] For Cushing's syndrome ( glucocorticoid excess) these include weight gain, muscle wasting, purple lines on the abdomen, a fatty " buffalo hump " on the neck, a "moonlike"[]

  • Leiomyosarcoma

[2] The ideal treatment protocol for splenic[] Liver and lungs are the most common sites of metastasis [ 16, 17 ]; however, LMS is also known to metastasize to the stomach, pancreas, small bowel, cardiac chambers, skin[] Cachexia, hepatomegaly, and ascites may be present in patients with advanced metastatic disease.[]

  • Ewing's Sarcoma

    There was no evidence of metastasis. ( Figure 2 ) Excision of the tumor with distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy was performed and specimen was sent for histopathological[] Cardiac metastasis of Ewing's sarcoma is exceedingly rare.[] […] of electrolyte wasting.[]

  • Visceral Leishmaniasis

    […] cells at sites of chronic infection or tumor metastasis has been observed ( 27 – 29 ).[] Complications may include: Cancer spread (metastasis) Cardiac arrest from low blood potassium level Dehydration If you have watery diarrhea for more than 2 to 3 days, call[] We present a case of a 12-year-old girl with a history of recurrent fever, anorexia, cachexia, chronic fatigue, weight loss, left palpebral unilateral edema, persistent cough[]
