66 Possible Causes for Cardiac Tamponade, Hepatomegaly, Tuberculous Pericarditis

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    We present a case of a 54-year old male with APS who developed pericarditis leading to cardiac tamponade with a subacute loculated effusion.[] Examination revealed raised jugular venous pressure (JVP), pitting pedal oedema, muffled heart sounds, bilateral pleural effusion and hepatomegaly.[] After a pericardiectomy done to restore cardiac compensation and to identify etiological factors, a tuberculous pericarditis (TBP) was diagnosed.[]

  • Pericarditis

    KEYWORDS: Cardiac tamponade; Emergency department ultrasound; Endocarditis; Purulent pericarditis[] He had leg oedema, hepatomegaly, jugular venous distension, and bilateral pleural effusion on chest radiography.[] However, it takes a period of time from tuberculous pericarditis to constrictive pericarditis.[]

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    tamponade I31.8 Other specified diseases of pericardium I31.9 Disease of pericardium, unspecified I32 Pericarditis in diseases classified elsewhere I33 Acute and subacute[] On physical examination they had tachycardia, jaundice, cachexia, elevated jugular venous pressure, hepatomegaly and ascites.[] Two of these cases were initially treated as tuberculous pericarditis.[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this paper is to review current approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of pericardial effusions and cardiac tamponade.[] Radiologic examinations were carried out, and the computed tomography scan revealed a hepatomegaly and a chest X-ray showed evidence of a unilateral pleural effusion.[] Abstract Diagnosis of tuberculous pericarditis remains a challenge.[]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

    Malignant pericardial effusion with cardiac tamponade is an uncommon metastatic manifestation of gynecologic cancers.[] Problems Fever – low grade 15 days B/L pleural effusion more on Left side Pericardial Effusion Ascites Hepatomegaly On ATT. 9.[] ., Diagnosing tuberculous pericarditis.

Am Heart J. 2006 ; 151 :316–22.[] Abstract Glycogenic hepatopathy is a rare condition that causes significant hepatomegaly and elevated liver enzyme levels in uncontrolled type 1 diabetic patients.[] Children with diabetic dwarfism syndrome, which was also known as Mauriac's syndrome, suffered from stunted growth, hepatomegaly, and delayed puberty. 4 In 1936, the first[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    This type of cardiac tamponade is clinically referred to as low pressure tamponade occurring in 20% of all cardiac tamponade cases.[] All patients had low CD4 cell count (range: 17-239 cells/mm3) and 50% of patients were treated for tuberculous pericarditis prior to making the correct diagnosis of Nocardia[] Pearls: Beck’s triad (JVD, muffled heart sounds, hypotension), pulsus paradoxus, EKG changes, peripheral edema, and hepatomegaly are non-specific in the identification of[]

  • Pericardial Calcification

    Rarely, a coronary injury may result in such a hemopericardium with cardiac tamponade.[] Most impressive physical findings are often the insidious development of ascites or hepatomegaly and ascites; such patients are often mistakenly thought to suffer from hepatic[] Jugular veins are prominent, hepatomegaly, ascites and edema are noted.[]

  • Suppurative Pericarditis

    We report what we believe to be the first case of Austrian's triad further complicated by purulent pericarditis and cardiac tamponade, and review the relevant literature.[] Early complaints of constrictive pericarditis are shortness of breath on exertion, recurrent chest pain and or symptoms of right-sided heart failure with venous congestion, hepatomegaly[] Objective To improve the diagnosis and treatment of constrictive tuberculous pericarditis ( CTP ). 22.[]

  • Radiation Pericarditis
