17 Possible Causes for Erythrocytosis, Iron Decreased, Pleural Effusion on Chest X-Ray

  • Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Tumor cells may produce erythropoietin and provoke erythrocytosis.[symptoma.com] […] abdominal mass; [9] malaise, which is a general feeling of unwellness; [9] weight loss and/or loss of appetite; [10] anaemia resulting from depression of erythropoietin ; [8] erythrocytosis[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    The blood tests showed the biological signs of malabsorption with profound hypoalbuminemia (15.5 g/L, N 37), decreased serum level of iron (0.52 mg/L, N 7.5) and folic acid[onlinelibrary.wiley.com] In addition, the following may be found: fever, weight loss, anemia, varicocele, and paraneoplastic syndromes (5%) characterized by erythrocytosis, hypercalcemia, liver dysfunction[bjn.org.br] In a manner analogous to stabilization of HIF via decreased hydroxylation, hypoxia was shown to suppress JARID1A (KDM5A) activity, resulting in increased H3K4me3 levels ([doi.org]

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    Imaging studies • Chest X ray to identify pleural effusion in children with marked ascitis and respiratory compromise • USG abdomen identifies anatomical site,size,parenchymal[slideshare.net] Hepcidin regulates systemic iron homeostasis by causing the internalization and degradation of ferroportin, resulting in decreased iron absorption in the small intestine,[link.springer.com] ray,tuberculin test,hepatitis B,C ,HIV,ANA). • Urine culture is not necessary unless the child has clinical features suggestive of UTI 21.[slideshare.net]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    Chest X-ray- The left cardiac silhouette is severely enlarged occupying most of the left chest and extending well above the carinal level, at least partially due to a probably[oatext.com] It is multifactorial, probably due to increased iron requirement, decreased absorption, bleeding, etc.[err.ersjournals.com] When bunazosin was stopped, the erythrocytosis increased, but when it was resumed, the erythrocytosis and general fatigue diminished.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polycythemia Neonatorum

    Chest X-rays showed mild cardiomegaly, pulmonary congestion and edema, and pleural effusions.[karger.com] Repeated phlebotomy resulted in a dramatic decrease in symptoms.[aetna.com] […] conjunctivitis Inclusion: Ophthalmia neonatorum due to gonococcus D45 Polycythemia vera excludes: familial polycythemia (D75.0) secondary polycythemia (D75.1) D75.0 Familial erythrocytosis[codelay.com]

  • Thrombocytosis

    The electrocardiogram was normal, and a chest X-ray confirmed left pleural effusion. Diuretics and simvastatin (40 mg/day) were administered.[scielo.br] An iron stain revealed clearly decreased storage iron. Other findings were normal.[jmedicalcasereports.com] […] is found in the vast majority of patients with polycythemia vera (PV) and this change is proposed to be one of diagnostic tools for PV, 1 while the presence of idiopathic erythrocytosis[nature.com]

  • Liver Neoplasm

    […] of the chest wall when viewed on the upright chest x-ray film.[medscape.com] Iron may be increased or decreased compared to the surrounding cirrhotic liver.[nature.com] Occasionally, systemic metabolic complications, including hypoglycemia, erythrocytosis, hypercalcemia, and hyperlipidemia, occur.[merckmanuals.com]

  • High Output Heart Failure

    A chest x-ray performed before any fluid resuscitation depicted a pulmonary edema and pleural effusion.[circ.ahajournals.org] Iron deficiency impairs contractility of human cardiomyocytes through decreased mitochondrial function. Eur J Heart Fail. 2018 Feb 27. [Medline].[medscape.com] VEGF, also increases the EPO concentrations in a dose-dependent manner. 71 Likewise, transgenic mice carrying both human renin and human angiotensinogen have persistent erythrocytosis[revespcardiol.org]

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Two days after admission, she complained of dyspnea, and a chest X-ray revealed right pleural effusion. Thoracentesis confirmed the diagnosis of hemothorax.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] overload, decreased vitamin A (retinoid acid) levels and downregulation of S-adenosyl methionine. [69] A comparison of whole exome sequencing of HCC tumors from European[doi.org] Patients with HCC can develop hypoglycemia due to the tumor's high metabolic needs as well as erythrocytosis due to tumor secretion of erythropoietin.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Alcoholic Liver Disease

    A chest X-ray can reveal pleural effusions and an abdominal ultrasound can help clinicians assess the patency of hepatic blood vessels and monitor for ascites.[journals.lww.com] Hemochromatosis Hemachromatosis (iron overload) is a metabolic disorder that leads to abnormally elevated iron stores in the body.[medicinenet.com] In addition, liver cancers can produce and release a number of substances, including ones that cause an increased in red blood cell count (erythrocytosis), low blood sugar[medicinenet.com]
