47 Possible Causes for Echogenic Kidneys, Epistaxis, small

  • Microscopic Polyangiitis

    IS SMALL-VESSEL VASCULITIS PRESENT?[] […] with polyangiitis (GPA) by absence of granulomatous inflammation Clinical Presentation Constitutional – weight loss, fever, myalgias Otorhinolaryngological – oral ulcers, epistaxis[] Both kidneys exhibited mildly increased renal parenchymal echogenicity and normal size.[]

  • 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[] Examples include upper levels of stage II hypertension associated with severe headache, shortness of breath, epistaxis, or severe anxiety.[] […] had increased cortical echogenicity on the right and left kidneys, respectively.[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

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

  • Purpura

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

  • Henoch-Schönlein Purpura

    Simultaneous involvement of small intestine and colon is rare.[] 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.[] Ultrasound Echogenic kidneys, target or doughnut sign in case of intussusception.[]

  • 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[] Case 1 A 60-year-old male presented with spontaneous, recurrent epistaxis, and left-sided nasal obstruction for 5 months.[] 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.[]

  • 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[] […] 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[] It is preferrable to have echogenicity studies in chronic renal disease.[]

  • Nephroblastoma

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

  • 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.[] […] 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[] My group is currently working to better understand how the combination of microdeletion and the small DNA changes can cause TAR-syndrome.[]

  • Amyloidosis

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