  • Essential Hypertension

    […] hemodynamic (133Xe-washout) and angiographic studies were performed in 46 patients with essential hypertension to demonstrate a possible correlation between graded renal small[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Examples include upper levels of stage II hypertension associated with severe headache, shortness of breath, epistaxis, or severe anxiety.[doi.org] […] had increased cortical echogenicity on the right and left kidneys, respectively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Patients with abnormal kidney size (particularly if small) typically have some form of underlying kidney disease.[clinicaladvisor.com] […] of bleeding and thrombosis in patients with renal insufficiency Bleeding Gastrointestinal bleedingBleeding from cannulation sites Retinal haemorrhage Subdural haematoma Epistaxis[academic.oup.com] However, we all leak tiny amounts of a small protein called albumin into our urine.[patient.info]

  • Purpura

    It is manifested with small hemorrhages in the skin, gastrointestinal symptoms, arthritis, and nephropathy.[icd9data.com] […] by extravasation of blood into the subcutaneous tissue, mucous membranes or skin; it generates bleeding manifestations as ecchymotic lesions, petechiae of sudden onset, epistaxis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ultrasound Echogenic kidneys, target or doughnut sign in case of intussusception.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Henoch-Schönlein Purpura

    Simultaneous involvement of small intestine and colon is rare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These patients experienced epistaxis, episcleritis, peroneal nerve palsy, and hemoptysis. IgA level was elevated in only 4/37 patients, and 54% had an elevated ESR.[cancertherapyadvisor.com] Ultrasound Echogenic kidneys, target or doughnut sign in case of intussusception.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Angiomyolipoma

    PURPOSE: To create a simple model using clinical variables for predicting lipid-poor angiomyolipoma (AML) in patients with small renal masses presumed to be renal cell carcinoma[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Case 1 A 60-year-old male presented with spontaneous, recurrent epistaxis, and left-sided nasal obstruction for 5 months.[ijpmonline.org] Diagnosis of Renal Angiomyolipoma Sonography of the Kidney: Sonography of the kidneys shows an echogenic mass in the kidney, caused by the high fat content.[urology-textbook.com]

  • Diabetic Nephropathy

    Adult-onset Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is a rare systemic vasculitis characterized by a leukocytoclastic vasculitis of small vessels with the deposition of IgA immune[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] months after the transplant, while the patient was maintained on steroids, cellcept and tacrolimus, his platelet count dipped to 13,000/microL and he had an episode of mild epistaxis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It is preferrable to have echogenicity studies in chronic renal disease.[symptoma.com]

  • Nephroblastoma

    The right gonad also was an ovotestis with a tiny focus of small cell malignancy that was suggestive of nephroblastoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical Features• Epidural: -featurs of raised intracranial pressure• Paraspinal –limb paresis• Primary in nasopharynx - epistaxis• Acute cerebellar encephalopathy- cerebellar[slideshare.net] At US, the enlarged kidney may have diffusely decreased echogenicity.[pubs.rsna.org]

  • Thrombocytopenia-Absent Radius Syndrome

    Thrombocytopenia absent radius (TAR) syndrome, associated with small, echogenic kidneys and subsequent end-stage renal disease, was seen in a full-term newborn.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] estimated at 0.5-1 in 100,000. [ 1 ] Presentation [ 2 ] Thrombocytopenia - may be transient, symptoms usually present in the first week of life, with purpura, petechiae, epistaxis[patient.info] My group is currently working to better understand how the combination of microdeletion and the small DNA changes can cause TAR-syndrome.[schulze-lab.de]

  • Amyloidosis

    This article focuses on small bowel amyloidosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] DIAGNOSES: The initial chief complaint of this patient was frequent epistaxis and right aural fullness. The initial diagnosis was nasopharyngeal tumor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] At US, amyloidosis is one of the rare causes of increased echogenicity and enlarged kidneys (, Fig 20 ).[pubs.rsna.org]
