1,536 Possible Causes for Embolism, Splenomegaly

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    Liver-directed therapies such as radiofrequency ablation, transarterial embolization, yttrium-90 microsphere radioembolization, and cryoablation may help to shrink tumors[]

  • Pharyngitis

    It is characterised by : Sore throat Fever Enlarged cervical lymph nodes Enlarged tonsils and fatigue Other clinical manifestations are splenomegaly (enlarged spleen), hepatomegaly[] An ultrasound showed partial thrombosis of the right internal jugular vein and a lung CT scan revealed multiple septic embolic lesions.[] Splenomegaly and/or hepatomegaly can be present in more than 50% of patients.[]

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    Approximately half of EBV mononucleosis cases involve generalized adenopathy or splenomegaly. An enlarged liver may also be palpable.[] Pulmonary embolism should be considered in the differential diagnosis of travelers who present with dyspnea, cough, or pleurisy and fever, especially those who have recently[] Sudden onset of cough, chest pain, and fever that may indicate pneumonia (or pulmonary embolism), resulting in a situation where the traveler may be sick enough to seek medical[]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    This score includes clinical, epidemiological (male, fever, splenomegaly, clubbing, vascular disease and stroke) and biological criteria (Leucocytes 10,000/mm3, sedimentation[] While embolism is a known complication of IE, the presence of multiple emboli in various organs is rare.[] Patients with SRL lesions were mainly men (P   .01), had liver disease (P   .001) with natural valve (P   .050) and mitro-aortic valve involvement (P   .042), splenomegaly[]

  • Bacterial Endocarditis

    The condition is characterized by heart murmur, prolonged fever, bacteremia, splenomegaly, and embolic phenomena.[] The SMA aneurysm was resected surgically, and the SGA lesion was treated by means of selective embolization.[] There can been present splenomegaly, tachycardia, petechiae on the skin occur in about 10-15% of patients usually appear in groups 2-3 days and fade away and disappear without[]

  • Hypersplenism

    While 38 patients displayed splenomegaly, 121 showed normal spleen volumes at 6 months after LDLT (LDLT).[] Thirteen patients with hypersplenism were successfully treated with transcatheter partial embolization of their spleen.[] Results Postoperative angiography demonstrated complete embolization of the proximal splenic artery in all 12 patients.[]

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    Due to the membrane defect, there is increased fragility, hemolytic anemia, marked splenomegaly and hyperbilirubinemia.[] Paradoxical embolism accounts for 2% of patients who present with acute arterial embolism of extremities.[] A retrospective review was conducted to evaluate all SILS for splenomegaly performed by a single surgeon.[]

  • Portal Hypertension

    We performed LS in 83 patients with massive splenomegaly ( 30 cm) secondary to portal hypertension and liver cirrhosis.[] The splenic artery was embolized both distal and proximal to and within the aneurysm sac.[] Laparoscopic splenectomy (LS) is relatively contraindicated in cirrhotic portal hypertension (CPH) patients with complicating hypersplenic splenomegaly (HS).[]

  • Plasma Cell Leukemia

    Primary Plasma cell leukaemia is more characterised by an extra medullar involvement such as hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, lymphadenopathy, lepto-meningeal infiltration or extramedullary[] Enlarged lymph nodes in axillary, pectoral, paratracheal, and periportal regions as well as slight hepatomegaly and splenomegaly were confirmed.[] […] as bortezomib, lenalidomide and thalidomide is poor with an overall survival of 7 months. [ 1 , 6 , 7 ] Our patient received thalidomide but quickly developed a pulmonary embolism[]

  • Mantle Cell Lymphoma

    Fatigue, generalized lymphadenopathy and splenomegaly are its typical features.[] There were three treatment-related deaths during the study, two due to sepsis and one due to embolic stroke.[] A baseline F-FDG PET/CT scan in a patient with mantle cell lymphoma showed diffuse minimally FDG-avid lymphadenopathy and splenomegaly.[]
