31 Possible Causes for Dyspnea at Rest, Hepatomegaly, Tuberculous Pericarditis

  • Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis

    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.[] Negative predictors of survival were found to be preoperative NYHA class IV (P 0.01), low-voltage electrocardiogram (ECG) (P 0.01), ascites (P 0.01), dyspnea at rest (P 0.05[]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    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.[] Tachypnea and dyspnea on exertion that progresses to air hunger at rest are the key symptoms, but it may not be possible to obtain such information from patients who are unconscious[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    We report a case of eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis in a 50-year-old Caucasian woman who presented with chest pain, dyspnea at rest, fever, and periorbital swelling[] Other signs of cardiac tamponade includes dyspnea, tachypnea, hepatomegaly, paradoxical pulses, and dysphoria.[] 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[]

  • Pulmonary Cavitary Tuberculosis

    Severe complications can include serositis, pericarditis and hepatomegaly and severe leukocytosis causing organ ischemia.[] The addition of corticosteroids is recommended for patients with tuberculous pericarditis and tuberculous meningitis.[] Cardiac Tuberculosis: The pericardium is the usual site for tuberculous infection of heart. The result is a granulomatous pericarditis that can be hemorrhagic.[]

  • Malignant Pericardial Effusion

QJM, 2006; 99(12):827-39. 13. FIOCCO M., KRASNA M.J., The management of malignant pleural and pericardial effusions.[] Six patients had exertional dyspnea and 13 had dyspnea at rest; three needed emergency pericardiocentesis.[]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    On physical examination, she had tachycardia, hepatomegaly, and muffled heart sounds.[] . 10 Tuberculous pericarditis has declined markedly in developed countries. 11[] […] effusion Constrictive pericarditis Symptoms of fluid overload ( backward failure ) Jugular vein distention, jugular venous pressure Kussmaul sign Hepatic vein congestion hepatomegaly[]

  • Hepatic Sarcoidosis

    The patient complained for dyspnea at rest and the 2D echocardiogram revealed a significant amount of pericardial fluid.[] Clinical presentation was with weight loss, hepatomegaly and abnormal liver function tests.[] 結核性心外膜炎:tuberculous pericarditis 心筋梗塞:myocardial infarction 心臓粘液腫:cardial myxoma 心・大血管奇形 2)血管 結節性動脈周囲炎:periarteritis nodosa (結節性多発性動脈炎:polyarteritis nodosa) 閉塞性血栓性血管炎(Buerger[]

  • Tuberculosis

    She also had tender hepatomegaly and free fluid in the abdomen. Her oxygen saturation was 85% on pulse oximetry.[] Adjunctive corticosteroids may be beneficial in patients with tuberculous meningitis, tuberculous pericarditis, or miliary tuberculosis with refractory hypoxemia.[] View Article Google Scholar Fowler NO: Tuberculous pericarditis. JAMA. 1991, 266: 199-203. 10.1001/jama.266.1.99.[]

  • Radiation Pericarditis

    This includes a pericardial knock Pericardial rub (heard best while leaning forwards) and distant heart sounds Abdomen Hepatomegaly Ascites Extremities Ankle edema Electrocardiogram[] Tuberculous pericarditis: a case report.[] The following symptoms may indicate pericardial mesothelioma: Difficulty breathing, even when at rest (dyspnea) Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) Murmurs[]

  • Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

    A resting tachycardia with a flow murmur may be present if the anemia is pronounced.[] […] hepatitis B virus, drug usage or cholestatic syndrome and in around 40% of cases its etiology will be defined as autoimmune. 22 One patient from the present sample developed hepatomegaly[] However, treatment with corticosteroids improved survival for the patient with bacterial meningitis, tuberculous meningitis, tuberculous pericarditis and are considered beneficial[]
