683 Possible Causes for Disturbance of Growth, Hepatomegaly

  • Thalassemia

    Figure 1 Probability of OS by age and hepatomegaly. Figure 2 Probability of DFS by age and hepatomegaly.[] Because of the decreased, and often pathological erythrocytes, hypoxia becomes clinically relevant as growth disturbances and trophic skin changes show in child age. α-Thalassemia[] As hypersplenism may cause worsening anemia, retarded growth and mechanical disturbance from the large spleen, splenectomy is a relevant aspect of the management of thalassemia[]

  • Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis

    RESULTS: All four patients were presented with jaundice, pruritus, hepatomegaly, sleep disturbance. They fulfilled the criteria for PFIC. The surgery was uneventful.[] Both patients had normal gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase levels, but showed severe pruritus with sleep disturbance, cholestasis, jaundice and growth failure.[] Clinical signs of cholestasis (discolored stools, dark urine) usually appear in the first months of life with recurrent or permanent jaundice associated with hepatomegaly[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Hepatomegaly (in chronic alcoholic liver disease the liver is shrunken). Ascites; gonadal atrophy. Atrial fibrillation and cardiomyopathy.[] Alcohol consumption disturbs hormones of the body, impairs the function of the glands and signaling of messages to the brain.[] Characteristic ultrasonographic findings include a hyperechoic liver with or without hepatomegaly.[]

  • Toxoplasmosis

    Toxoplasmosis is only one of the putative infectious agents that derange correct brain growth and differentiation, alongside genetic and environmental factors.[] […] common encephalomyelitis, retinochoroiditis, intracranial calcification and hydrocephalus to the non-specific symptoms of acute infection such as convulsion, splenomegaly, hepatomegaly[] There may be ventriculomegaly, CNS calcifications, placental changes, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, ascites and pericardial or pleural effusion [ 3 ] .[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Abstract Glycogenic hepatopathy is a rare condition that causes significant hepatomegaly and elevated liver enzyme levels in uncontrolled type 1 diabetic patients.[] Hormonal disturbances Diabetes can also result from other hormonal disturbances, such as excessive growth hormone production (acromegaly) and Cushing's syndrome.[] 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[]

  • Hemochromatosis

    The main adverse effects are inflammatory reactions at the sites of injection, visual and auditory disturbances, bone growth disturbances, and allergic reactions, including[] […] transferrin saturation (TS); ALT; AST; GGT; elevated C-reactive protein; ß-thalassemia; neutrophils; lymphocytes; monocytes; platelets; metacarpophalangeal joint hypertrophy; hepatomegaly[] Eight of the 16 homozygous subjects had clinical findings that were consistent with the presence of hereditary hemochromatosis, such as hepatomegaly, skin pigmentation, and[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right upper quadrant sonogram revealed hepatomegaly of 15 cm, trace amount of perihepatic ascites, pericholecystic fluid, and also thickened edematous gallbladder wall with[] Cardiomyopathy can also be seen in babies and can be due to a number of problems such as rhythm disturbances or infections.[] Cardiac examination at the age of 6 years revealed constrictive pericarditis with significant elevation of atrial filling pressures, consecutive hepatomegaly, and protein[]

  • Congenital Generalized Lipodystrophy Type 2

    Disease definition Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy (BSCL) is characterized by the association of lipoatrophy, hypertriglyceridemia, hepatomegaly and acromegaloid[] Hepatomegaly and splenomegaly may be found during the postnatal examination and may provoke umbilical prominence or even an umbilical hernia.[] Complications include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a fatty liver with hepatic dysfunction, muscular hypertrophy, a number of endocrine disturbances (accelerated growth in[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Right sided heart failure Right sided heart failure Right sided heart failure Right sided heart failure Anasarca (massive generalized body edema) Right sided heart failure Hepatomegaly[] Cardiomyopathy can also be seen in babies and can be due to a number of problems such as rhythm disturbances or infections.[] Abdominal examination elicited pain during superficial palpation on the right upper quadrant with hepatomegaly identification, with no signs of ascites.[]

  • Hepatoblastoma

    Abdominal magnetic resonance findings revealed hepatomegaly with multiple tumor masses involving nearly all the segments of the liver (PRETEXT IV).[] Antecedent growth disturbance of liver, either intrinsic, (abnormal lobation) or related to contiguous extrinsic anomalies such as omphalocele or local diaphragmatic hypoplasia[] Virtually all patients were infants or young children with hepatomegaly or a mass.[]
