385 Possible Causes for Ferritin Increased, Iron Deficiency, Jaundice

  • Hemochromatosis

    Here we report the case of a 16-year-old Chinese boy, who was admitted with hepatalgia, jaundice, hyperpigmentation, and splenomegaly to our hospital.[] The correlation between uricemia and log(ferritin) with partial regression correlation coefficients was 0.307 (P CONCLUSIONS: The increase in uricemia is associated with the[] deficiency anemia - ferritin Brittenham GM.[]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    Jaundice: There is mild jaundice caused by the excessive breakdown of hemoglobin due to ineffective erythropoiesis in the bone marrow.[] […] in mean corpuscular volume and levels of ferritin and gastrin, and a decrease in vitamin B 12 levels.[] Biology of Iron-Deficiency Anemia An iron deficiency can also disrupt hemoglobin function, causing iron-deficiency anemia.[]

  • Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria

    Although the severe obstructive jaundice requiring endoscopic therapy following cholecystectomy was complicated, critical intravascular hemolysis and thrombosis were not observed[] Deteriorating kidney function and persistent Fanconi syndrome were accompanied by a progressive increase in serum ferritin levels.[] PNH through chronic intravascular hemolysis induces an urinary iron loss. This is the only cause of hemolytic anemia inducing iron deficiency.[]

  • Thalassemia

    Diagnostic methods Diagnosis is suspected in infants younger than 2 years of age with severe microcytic anemia, mild jaundice and hepatosplenomegaly.[] Insulin resistance and serum ferritin showed significant increase at 6 months (P CONCLUSIONS: Prolonged disease duration and higher serum ferritin adversely affects glucose[] Red cell distribution width in iron deficiency anemia and β-thalassemia minor [letter]. Am J Clin Pathol. 2008 ; 130 : 313 – 314. 5..[]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    A rare syndrome defined by a rapid decline in hepatic function, characterised by jaundice, coagulopathy (INR 1.5), and hepatic encephalopathy in patients with no evidence[] Alcoholic gastritis often “oozes” blood, which can lead to iron-deficiency anemia, but it can also cause sudden and dramatic blood loss, especially if the condition progresses[] Also, alcohol's ability to interrupt the bone marrow's red blood cell production and to cause bleeding from gastric ulcers may lead to the development of iron deficiency anemia[]

  • Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

    Secondary AIHA might not be diagnosed appropriately because the obstructive jaundice observed in type 1 AIP/IgG4-SC can obscure the presence of hemolytic jaundice.[] The main types of anemia in patients with Crohn's disease are iron deficiency anemia and anemia of chronic disease.[] A 48 year old lady presented with jaundice and exertional breathlesness.[]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    We report an adolescent girl who presented with jaundice and weight loss for 6 months secondary to vitamin B12 deficiency, leading to megaloblastic anaemia.[] […] serum iron and ferritin levels, 63 but with increased levels of soluble serum transferrin receptor, presumably related to hemolysis. 64 Corresponding to the increase in LDH[] Adjacent To D51.9 D50.0 Iron deficiency anemia secondary to blood loss (chronic) D50.1 Sideropenic dysphagia D50.8 Other iron deficiency anemias D50.9 Iron deficiency anemia[]

  • African Iron Overload

    Logistic regression, correcting for factors influencing iron status, did show increased ferritin levels in individuals with the mutation.[] deficiency anemia - ferritin Brittenham GM.[] Increased iron in the liver • Abnormal LFTs • Increased urinary iron excretion in response to iron chelation therapy • Cardiomyopathies causing weird ECGs • MRI can detect[]

  • Anemia of Infection

    Symptoms include weakness, paleness, jaundice, dark-colored urine, fever, inability to do physical activity, and heart murmur.[] Serum iron and percentage saturation of transferrin decreased, whereas serum ferritin increased significantly.[] […] if any symptoms of iron deficiency anemia arise.[]

  • Folate-Deficiency Anemia

    Heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, impaired urination, weight loss Unsteady gait, clumsiness, loss of sensation in the feet Pins and needles sensations or numbness in fingers or toes Jaundice[] […] and iron deficiency anemia.[] […] fatigue shortness of breath heart palpitations weakness glossitis (inflammation of the tongue) nausea anorexia headache fainting irritability forgetfulness pallor slight jaundice[]
