365 Possible Causes for Hepatomegaly, Increased Echogenicity

  • Glycogen Storage Disease

    They were ultimately found to have hepatomegaly, fasting hypoglycemia, mild elevation of transaminases and ketosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hepatomegaly is seen in the hepatic subtypes 2 along with increased echogenicity (US) and density (CT) 3 .[radiopaedia.org] Most patients with the disease are thought to outgrow the childhood manifestations, which include hepatomegaly, poor growth, and ketosis with or without hypoglycemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Liver Disease

    CASE REPORT In 1979, CESD was first diagnosed in a 13-year-old female with marked hepatomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abdominal ultrasound 5 weeks after SIRT revealed a slightly increased echogenicity of the liver.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Findings that suggest the presence of cirrhosis include: Small, contracted liver Surface nodularity, increased echogenicity of liver Splenomegaly Ascites Collateral veins[hiv.va.gov]

  • Fatty Liver

    Furthermore, these cases of hepatomegaly and fatty liver have been also in the context of concomitant extrahepatic side effects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ultrasound findings are those of hepatic steatosis , with increased echogenicity and coarsened echotexture of the liver (see also: grading of diffuse hepatic steatosis ) if[radiopaedia.org] Ultrasonography reveals a "bright" liver with increased echogenicity .[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Amebiasis

    Amebiasis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of infants and children with hematochezia or hepatomegaly, especially in endemic areas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (HFF) demonstrating chaotic motility, increased peri-lesional tissue echogenicity, and altered colonic peristalsis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Right upper quadrant pain, fever and hepatomegaly are the predominant symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Zellweger Syndrome

    Liver disease was evident from hepatomegaly and elevated serum liver enzymes and bilirubin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Increased echogenicity of fetal bowel in the second trimester obstetrical ultrasound has been described in association with several pathologic conditions, such as growth restriction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] and 9% of control fibroblast dihydroxyacetone phosphate acyltransferase activity, and one with mild facial manifestations, wide sutures, hypotonia, developmental delay, hepatomegaly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Hyperoxaluria

    He presented with fatigue, anorexia, weight loss, and was found to have cachexia, diffuse edema, hepatomegaly, ascites, hypercalcemia, hyperphosphatemia, hypoalbuminemia,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] optic nerve Damage to the retina Inflammation of heart membrane (myocarditis) Irregular heartbeat Stroke (cardioembolic) Enlarged spleen (splenomegaly) and enlarged liver (hepatomegaly[dovemed.com] GSD is classified according to the type of genetically defective enzymes and induces hepatomegaly, hypoglycemia and/or muscular symptoms.[ojrd.biomedcentral.com]

  • Alcoholic Fatty Liver

    In addition to jaundice and marked hepatomegaly, the patient presented with hypocalcemic crisis associated with hypomagnesemia, low plasma 1,25(OH)2-vitamin D and undetectable[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ultrasound findings are those of hepatic steatosis , with increased echogenicity and coarsened echotexture of the liver (see also: grading of diffuse hepatic steatosis ) if[radiopaedia.org] Hepatomegaly may be observed and supports the diagnosis.[symptoma.com]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 4

    Patients can be given appropriate diet to reduce hepatomegaly and cirrhosis and complications can be delayed.[symptoma.com] Hepatomegaly is seen in the hepatic subtypes 2 along with increased echogenicity (US) and density (CT) 3 .[radiopaedia.org] Glycogen accumulation in the liver leads to hepatomegaly and interferes with liver functioning.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 3

    Hepatomegaly and growth retardation are other common features.[symptoma.com] Hepatomegaly is seen in the hepatic subtypes 2 along with increased echogenicity (US) and density (CT) 3 .[radiopaedia.org] GSD III is characterized by fasting hypoglycemia, hepatomegaly, growth retardation, progressive myopathy, and cardiomyopathy due to storage of abnormally structured glycogen[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Fatty Liver of Pregnancy

    USG abdomen revealed hepatomegaly with fatty changes grade 2-3, medical renal disease, and minimal ascites.[najms.org] The ultrasound findings were normal in 12 patients, an increasingly coarsened echo-pattern and increased echogenicity of the liver in 10 patients, and mild to moderate fatty[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Respiratory, cardiovascular and nervous system were normal.Ultrasonography revealed hepatomegaly with hypoechoic liver parenchyma and gallbladder wall edema.[casereports.in]
