18 Possible Causes for Decreased Platelet Count, Miliary Tuberculosis of the Liver

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

    In miliary tuberculosis , the liver almost always is involved by acute granulomatous inflammation.[] Miliary TB may infect any number of organs, including the lungs, liver, and spleen.[] Clinical findings suggestive of disseminated tuberculosis were miliary lung lesions, serum ferritin 1000 microg/L, infiltrative liver disease, and adjusted calcium 2.6 mmol[]

  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

    Several isolates of a human type-C retrovirus belonging to one group, known as human T-cell leukemia virus (HTLV), have previously been obtained from patients with adult T-cell leukemia or lymphoma. The T-cell tropism of HTLV and its prevalence in the Caribbean basin prompted a search for it in patients with the[…][]

  • Malaria

    BACKGROUND: Plasmodium knowlesi is increasingly recognized as a cause of human malaria in Southeast Asia but there are no detailed prospective clinical studies of naturally acquired infections. METHODS: In a systematic study of the presentation and course of patients with acute P. knowlesi infection, clinical and[…][]

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    Fibrosis is the most common cause of portal hypertension, though there are several other causes (such as schistosomiasis, sarcoidosis, and miliary tuberculosis).[] Reduced levels of platelets or decreased white blood cell count. Cleveland Clinic News & More Cleveland Clinic News & More[] When the spleen enlarges, the number (count) of white blood cells can decrease (increasing the risk of infections), and the number (count) of platelets can decrease (increasing[]

  • Liver Abscess

    […] is usually noted in association with pulmonary disease or miliary tuberculosis.[] Keywords Isolated tubercular liver abscess; Subcapsular liver abscess; Extrapulmonary tuberculosis; Differential diagnosis Introduction Hepatic involvement in tuberculosis[] Most of the cases that have been described usually occur in association with miliary tuberculosis, mainly through hematogenous dissemination [ 6 ].[]

  • Splenic Vein Thrombosis

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    Complete blood cell count revealed a moderate increase in neutrophils (Neut) 80.95% (38.0-70.0), platelet count (PLT) 576.0 K/µL (130-450), and glucose 114 mg/dl (74-106),[] […] and a moderate decrease in lymphocytes (LYM) 14.2% (21.0-50.0), mean corpuscular volume (MCV) of erythrocytes 76.6 fL (81-99) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) in erythrocytes[]

  • Leukoerythroblastic Anemia

    ) may indicate: Abetalipoproteinemia Severe liver disease The presence of teardrop-shaped cells may indicate: Leukoerythroblastic anemia Myelofibrosis Severe iron deficiency[] The platelet count The normal platelet count is 150-400 x 10 9 /L.[] Decreasing platelet counts in ET to below 600 x 10 9 /L can decrease thrombotic complications. 46 High platelet counts ( 1,000 x 10 9 /L) are associated with acquired von[]

  • Leukopenia

    tuberculosis or sepsis Drugs, chemicals and physical agents which induce aplasia of the bone marrow e.g. anti metabolites, ionising radiation.[] The main effects were anaemia, leucopenia , decreased platelet counts and panmyelopathy and reflect the basic mode of action of the compound (inhibition of DNA synthesis Vomiting.Alopecia[] CONCLUSION: RYGB is associated with a generalized decrease in the white blood cell and platelet counts.[]

  • Spleen Disease

    tuberculosis Liver diseases such as cirrhosis, or thrombosis of the portal or splenic veins, causing obstruction to hepatic blood flow and backing it up to the spleen Hemolytic[] […] liver volume (-6.6 percent), and increased platelet count (41 percent).[] (low platelet count).[]
