  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Answers QUESTION 1 The CT scan (figure 2 ) shows a large mass (arrow) arising from the region of the right adrenal gland.[] To minimize the risk of iron deficiency anemia, all formula-fed term infants should receive iron fortified formulas.[]

  • Hypokalemia

    Adrenal imaging with computerized tomography (CT) scan showed a low-density mass measuring 2.1 cm in diameter in the left adrenal (Figure 2 ).[] Others, such as iron-deficiency anemia, may result from heavy menstrual periods, ulcers, colon pol ... yps and even an iron-poor diet, making you dizzy, cold, weak and irritable[] CT scan revealed an adrenal gland mass with 1.6 cm in diameter (Figure 3 ). Symptoms were relieved after treatment with potassium and spironolactone.[]

  • Ganglioneuroblastoma

    These showed a 5 5 6 cm solid mass originating in the right adrenal gland, which suggested neuroblastoma.[] Use cautiously with a history of iron deficiency anemia. Use cautiously with blood clotting disorders, low blood pressure, diabetes, or peptic ulcer disease.[] (a) Axial IV contrast-enhanced CT scan shows multiple areas of low attenuation throughout the liver.[]

  • VIPoma

    CT: 5cm mass tail & body of pancreas, no hepatic or adrenal lesions. Octreotide treatment started. Bowel frequency improved, hypokalaemia corrected.[] I failed to mention it to my specialist who was investigating a GP/PCP diagnosis of Iron Deficiency Anemia/weight loss.[] Octreotide scan showed uptake only in pancreas. Patient readmitted 5 months later hypokalaemic myopathy, K 1.7, surgical distal pancreatectomy & splenectomy completed.[]

  • Orbital Pseudotumor

    Unenhanced abdominal CT scan (not shown) revealed a right adrenal mass with no calcifications.[] Past Ocular History: Presbyopia Cataract Surgery Medical History: Hypothyroidism Joint pain Progressive temporomandibular joint pain Atrial fibrillation Iron deficiency anemia[] Blood tests revealed iron deficiency, microcytic anemia and an elevated ESR. He was referred to Gastroenterology.[]

  • ACTH-Independent Cushing Syndrome

    Random lab tests revealed a suppressed adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) A CT scan with an adrenal protocol was performed ( see figure 1) that showed multiple low attenuation[] deficiency anemia Irritable bowel syndrome Japanese encephalitis Jaundice and cholestasis Juvenile idiopathic arthritis Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma Kawasaki disease[] masses within both adrenal glands consistent with adrenal adenomas.[]

  • ACTH-Dependent Cushing Syndrome

    Surprisingly, in our patient CT scan and PET denied tumoral nodules in the most common sites of ectopic ACTH secrection [4], but showed a large adrenal mass suggestive for[] deficiency anemia Irritable bowel syndrome Japanese encephalitis Jaundice and cholestasis Juvenile idiopathic arthritis Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma Kawasaki disease[] Insulinoma Internal hernia Interstitial lung disease Intestinal ischemia Intracerebral hemorrhage Intrauterine growth restriction Intravenous anaesthetics Intussusception Iron[]

  • Carney-Stratakis Syndrome

    Although we suspected PPNAD, abdominal CT finding and echocardiographic finding were not typical of PPNAD, as CT scanning of adrenal glands in PPNAD generally shows normal[] The tumor(s) cause mucosal ulceration and gastric bleeding that results in iron-deficiency anemia, and melena or hematemesis or both.[] […] or slightly enlarged glands without evidence of mass 10) .[]
