80 Possible Causes for Echogenic Kidneys, Hemoglobin Decreased, small

  • Malabsorption Syndrome

    We describe the case of a 51-year-old woman presenting with chronic small bowel diarrhoea and malabsorption.[] Ultrasound showed both kidneys to be 9.5 cm in length with mild cortical thinning and increased echogenicity. Her daily urine volume ranged between 2000-2600 mL.[] The cause of her complaints turned out to be immunoproliferative small intestinal disease which is a very uncommon disorder in our geographical region.[]

  • Microscopic Polyangiitis

    IS SMALL-VESSEL VASCULITIS PRESENT?[] Her hemoglobin level dropped from 8.8 to 4.5 g/dl in the subsequent hours.[] Both kidneys exhibited mildly increased renal parenchymal echogenicity and normal size.[]

  • Nephroblastoma

    The right gonad also was an ovotestis with a tiny focus of small cell malignancy that was suggestive of nephroblastoma.[] The most frequently altered parameter was hemoglobin, which was decreased in 41.7 % of survivors. Decraesed hemoglobin may worsen quality of survivors life.[] At US, the enlarged kidney may have diffusely decreased echogenicity.[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Patients with abnormal kidney size (particularly if small) typically have some form of underlying kidney disease.[] Over the past 6 months, she has noticed a decrease in her energy level.[] However, we all leak tiny amounts of a small protein called albumin into our urine.[]

  • Penetrating Abdominal Trauma

    Abstract The reported overall incidence of postoperative Small Bowel Obstruction (SBO) is 0.69 per cent.[] However, the bowels were floating in free intra-abdominal fluid - the echogenicity suggestive of blood.[] BACKGROUND: Injuries of the small intestine are common in penetrating abdominal trauma.[]

  • Polycystic Kidney Disease

    Thus, this small molecule inhibitor could be evaluated in a clinical trial as a viable therapy of ADPKD. Published by Elsevier Inc.[] The kidneys are often diffusely echogenic.[] Abstract Systemic therapy with cytotoxic agents remains one of the main treatment methods for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC).[]

  • Amyloidosis

    This article focuses on small bowel amyloidosis.[] At US, amyloidosis is one of the rare causes of increased echogenicity and enlarged kidneys (, Fig 20 ).[] In addition, a unique pattern of amyloid deposition was observed in spleen, adrenal glands, small intestine, gallbladder, lungs, ovaries, and uterus.[]

  • Kawasaki Disease

    Kawasaki disease (KD) is a syndrome characterized by various degrees of vasculitis in small-and medium-sized arteries.[] CONCLUSION: The initial administration of IVIG  4.0 days after the onset of symptoms increased ESR and decreased hemoglobin and platelet counts, oral mucosa alterations, cervical[] An ultrasound of the abdomen was performed which showed mild hepatomegaly with some echogenic areas in the renal parenchyma in both kidneys.[]

  • Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease

    Thus, this small molecule inhibitor could be evaluated in a clinical trial as a viable therapy of ADPKD. Published by Elsevier Inc.[] Ultrasound (US) findings can include enlarged echogenic kidneys in utero and cysts in multiple organs in adults.[] We describe a case of bilateral PKD complicated with a large enhancing mass and multiple small nodules in the left kidney.[]

  • Splenic Subcapsular Hematoma

    A small number of patients carrying hemoglobin S are homozygous, with clinical manifestations of hemolytic anemia and thrombotic disease.[] Altered Level of Consciousness ) Consider at 24-48 hours if high grade Splenic Injury (Grade 3 or higher) Indications for surgical intervention Continued Hemoglobin decrease[] Its echo structure is homogeneous and only slightly more echogenic than healthy liver tissue and markedly hyperechoic compared to kidney tissue.[]
