59 Possible Causes for Hematocrit Decreased, Recurrent Urinary Tract Infection

  • Carcinoma of the Prostate

    Prostatic urothelial carcinoma is a rare disease. Medical misdiagnosis rates remain high because there are no specific clinical symptoms or imaging features, which decreases patient survival. We report a case of prostatic urethral cancer confirmed by transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy because of an[…][]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate

    Abstract Herein we report a rare case of prostatic invasion of rectal carcinoma in a patient with ulcerative colitis. Malignant transformation is a well-known complication of long-standing ulcerative colitis. Mucinous adenocarcinoma, with positive carcinoembryonic antigen and negative prostate-specific antigen, strongly[…][]

  • Myelodysplasia

    […] the hematocrit, but not the WBC count.[] Response The labeled indication for the treatment of anemia related to chemotherapy is to decrease the need for transfusions in patients who will be receiving concomitant[] Unlike the target hematocrit of under 45% for PV, a target platelet count does not exist for ET.[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    […] in serum globulin and an increase in hematocrit but no difference in survival compared with a placebo. 36 In another study, prednisone, in a single dose of 200 mg every other[] […] multiple myeloma. 35 Corticosteroids were first tested by Maas, who determined in a placebo-controlled double-blind trial that prednisone as a single agent produced significant decreases[]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Symptoms CLICK TO ENLARGE No two cases of lupus are exactly alike. Signs and symptoms may come on suddenly or develop slowly, may be mild or severe, and may be temporary or permanent. Most people with lupus experience episodes — called "flares" — of worsening signs and symptoms that eventually improve or even[…][]

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    Transfusion-induced iron overload is a frequent problem that clinicians have to face in the treatment of patients affected by both myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF). Different options are currently available for chelation therapy, e.g. oral once-daily administration of the iron chelator[…][]

  • Polycystic Kidney Disease

    A 56-year-old woman with autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease and recurrent urinary tract infections was admitted to the hospital with suspicion of pyelonephritis.[] He reports a history of recurrent urinary tract infections and his family history is significant for his mother who died of a "brain bleed" at age 42.[] Common symptoms include pain in the back and/or abdomen, hematuria, recurrent urinary tract infection, kidney stones, and kidney failure.[]

  • Primary Hyperoxaluria

    Two patients were compound heterozygous for the c.731 T C, c.32C T, c.1020A G and c.33_34insC and presented clinically with recurrent urinary tract infection, multiple urolithiasis[] The natural history of PH is such that this problem presents early in childhood as calcium oxalate stones and nephrocalcinosis with recurrent urinary tract infection and progresses[] Hematuria, pain and recurrent urinary tract infections are typical signs in this patient population and the term "infantile oxalosis" represents a triad of acidosis, anemia[]

  • Familial Myelofibrosis

    Abstract Two siblings developed a fulminant fatal myeloproliferative disease at 7 and 8 weeks of age. The illness presented with pallor, haemorrhagic symptoms, and hepatosplenomegaly, and the blood picture was that of pancytopenia and leucoerythroblastosis. Bone marrow histology showed reduced haemopoiesis with[…][]

  • Severe Aplastic Anemia

    Diffuse eosinophilic fasciitis (Shulman disease) is a rare sclerodermiform syndrome that, in most cases, resolves spontaneously or after corticosteroid therapy. It has been associated with hematologic disorders, such as aplastic anemia. The clinical features and long-term outcomes of patients with eosinophilic fasciitis[…][]
