692 Possible Causes for Edema, Lupus Nephritis

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    Examination revealed bilateral pedal edema and mild ascites.[] Renal histology showed International Society of Nephrology/Renal Pathology Society Class II lupus nephritis.[] This is a nonspecific disease of the kidney characterized by proteinuria, edema and hypoalbuminemia.[]

  • Protein Losing Enteropathy

    We studied a patient with edema secondary to protein losing enteropathy, and recurrent bouts of bloating and abdominal pain secondary to intestinal subocclusion episodes.[] Twenty-five PLE patients (56.8%) had concomitant lupus nephritis (LN). Of these, seven patients underwent renal biopsy.[] A 63-year-old woman was admitted with symptoms of watery diarrhea and generalized edema lasting for five months. She had been administered 15 mg/day of lansoprazole.[]

  • Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis

    The purpose of this case is to raise awareness of nephrotic syndrome as an unusual but possibly cause of retropharyngeal edema.[] The Ba levels measured in plasma from patients with CKD, ANCA vasculitis, and lupus nephritis were compared to the eGFR.[] The patient has pitting pedal edema rated as 3 (5 mm edema, pit formed on palpation is deep and lasts 1 minute). Urinalysis reveals marked proteinuria (3 ).[]

  • Membranous Glomerulonephritis

    However at 34 months, generalized edema was again noted and steroid therapy at high dosage was initiated.[] Two Japanese female adolescents with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), known cases of urinary tract involvements: one with biopsy-proven class II lupus nephritis and the[] A 26-year-old woman presented at our hospital with pretibial edema, swelling, and vaginal bleeding.[]

  • Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis

    Thyroxine replacement therapy along with steroids may lead to significant decrease in proteinuria and resolution of edema.[] Lupus nephritis (LN) is a severe manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus; in LN class IV morphologic lesions may be similar to the lesions in primary membranoproliferative[] The patient, a 17-year-old male, presented with edema, hypertension, and microscopic hematuria, followed by a mild upper respiratory tract infection.[]

  • Post-Streptococcal Glomerulonephritis

    A case of acute encephalopathy with posterior corticosubcortical vasogenic edema on magnetic resonance imaging is reported.[] Autoantibodies against complement C1q (anti-C1q) strongly correlate with the occurrence of severe lupus nephritis.[] nephritis, thin basement membrane nephropathy.[]

  • Hypogammaglobulinemia

    ., Charlotte Cunningham-Rundles x Published: December 26, 2006 Citation: Knight AK, Mayer L, Franks AG Jr, Cunningham-Rundles C (2006) Hypogammaglobulinemia with Facial Edema[] Significant associations were noted for white race (p value 0.029), male sex (p value 0.009), and the presence of lupus nephritis at SLE diagnosis (p value 0.004).[] […] increased catabolism of immunoglobulins Nephrotic Syndrome (see Nephrotic Syndrome , [[Nephrotic Syndrome]]) Hypoalbuminemia (see Hypoalbuminemia , [[Hypoalbuminemia]]) Edema[]

  • Renal Vein Thrombosis

    At autopsy the renal veins are occluded by premortem thrombi, and the kidneys are moderately enlarged, showing interstitial edema and fibrosis and tubular changes.[] In general, patients with lupus and documented RVT have membranous lupus nephritis (World Heath Organization class V).[] Abstract The nephrotic syndrome may be defined as a clinical state resulting from a renal disorder and characterized by edema, hyperlipemia, hypoproteinemia, and massive proteinuria[]

  • Eclampsia

    A clinical case series of four patients with Pre-eclampsia that presented with gross vulva edema.[] A woman with lupus nephritis presented 7 days postpartum with eclampsia. Postseizure findings included dramatic short-term memory loss.[] […] an important role in brain edema.[]

  • Glomerulonephritis

    A 77-year-old man presented with a fever, non-productive cough, and edema formation.[] Lupus-like HIVICK is treated differently than 'true' lupus nephritis, so distinction is warranted.[] This results in edema, as the oncotic pressure in tissue remains the same.[]
