29 Possible Causes for Hepatomegaly, Increased Area of Cardiac Dullness

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Right upper quadrant sonogram revealed hepatomegaly of 15 cm, trace amount of perihepatic ascites, pericholecystic fluid, and also thickened edematous gallbladder wall with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cardiac examination at the age of 6 years revealed constrictive pericarditis with significant elevation of atrial filling pressures, consecutive hepatomegaly, and protein[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] · Hepatojugular reflux · Weight loss 4.5 kg in 5 days in response to treatment Minor criteria: · Bilateral ankle edema · Nocturnal cough · Dyspnea on ordinary exertion · Hepatomegaly[web.archive.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    Additional symptoms may include fluid collection in the abdomen (ascites) and feet due to accumulation of fluid, congestion of the lungs, and an abnormally large liver (hepatomegaly[rarediseases.org] […] muffled heart sounds 41 with a third heart sound, 13,41 a mitral regurgitation murmur 13,41 or signs of pulmonary congestion. 13 Signs of systemic venous congestion including hepatomegaly[revportcardiol.org]

  • Pericardial Effusion

    Radiologic examinations were carried out, and the computed tomography scan revealed a hepatomegaly and a chest X-ray showed evidence of a unilateral pleural effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Considerable amounts of pericardial fluid may muffle heart sounds, increase the area of cardiac dullness, and change the size and shape of the cardiac silhouette.[merckmanuals.com] Since it was considered that using ultrasound-guided pericardiocentesis could significantly increase the risk of liver injury due to hepatomegaly, a pericardial window was[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Other signs of cardiac tamponade includes dyspnea, tachypnea, hepatomegaly, paradoxical pulses, and dysphoria.[symptoma.com] Pearls: Beck’s triad (JVD, muffled heart sounds, hypotension), pulsus paradoxus, EKG changes, peripheral edema, and hepatomegaly are non-specific in the identification of[emdocs.net] Tachycardia, tachypnea, and hepatomegaly are observed in more than 50% of patients with cardiac tamponade, and diminished heart sounds and a pericardial friction rub are present[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Fetal Erythroblastosis

    Also, the newborn will be anemic and pale and present splenomegaly and hepatomegaly, caused by extramedullary hematopoiesis. Portal hypertension has the same cause.[symptoma.com] […] haemolyticus neonatorum (fetal erythroblastosis) with the following symptoms: anemia (due to the hemolysis) splenomegaly (location of the macrophages that destroy the erythrocytes) hepatomegaly[embryology.ch]

  • Alcoholic Cardiomyopathy

    Jugular venous distention, peripheral edema, and hepatomegaly are evidence of elevated right heart pressures and right ventricular dysfunction.[emedicine.com]

  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Rarely, right ventricular failure with systemic venous congestion, hepatomegaly, and edema precede LV failure.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] an S3 or S4 gallop, the irregular rhythm of atrial fibrillation, an enlarged and laterally displaced point of maximal impulse, pulmonary rales, jugular venous distention, hepatomegaly[doi.org]

  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    The abdominal exam revealed hepatomegaly. The extremities displayed cyanosis and poor perfusion, with no edema.[revportcardiol.org] She also had tender hepatomegaly and free fluid in the abdomen. Her oxygen saturation was 85% on pulse oximetry.[doi.org] […] muffled heart sounds 41 with a third heart sound, 13,41 a mitral regurgitation murmur 13,41 or signs of pulmonary congestion. 13 Signs of systemic venous congestion including hepatomegaly[revportcardiol.org]

  • Ischemic Cardiomyopathy

    Crow-Fukase syndrome was diagnosed on the basis of findings of polyneuropathy, hepatomegaly, monoclonal hypergammaglobulinemia, and hypertrichosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Signs and tests include: hepatomegaly; "crackles" in the lungs (heard with a stethoscope); extra heart sounds; and elevated pressure in the neck vein.[symptoma.com] […] pressures and determine the degree of jugular venous distension and its response to abdominal pressure, the presence and severity of organ congestion (pulmonary rales and hepatomegaly[circ.ahajournals.org]
