164 Possible Causes for Hepatomegaly, Jugular Venous Distention

  • Heart Failure

    A physical examination revealed a systolic murmur, which was best audible in the right parasternal side, ascites, and hepatomegaly.[] Proper evaluation of the patient’s history as well as physical checks for signs of congestion such as jugular venous distention can bring about the underlying cardiac abnormality[] We report the case of a 41-year-old female patient admitted to the Department of Cardiology with clinical signs of right heart failure: congested jugular veins, hepatomegaly[]

  • Tricuspid Valve Insufficiency

    Finally, laboratory tests may reveal hyperbilirubinemia and increased liver transaminase levels due to congestive hepatomegaly.[] Jugular venous distention may occur; severe TR may cause abdominal distension, hepatic enlargement, and peripheral edema.[] Blood flow into the pulmonary circulation is impaired and is accompanied by peripheral oedema and hepatomegaly.[]

  • Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

    We emphasize the importance of being aware of this condition when a patient with ALL in complete remission presents with unexplained hepatomegaly, cytopenia, and fever.[] Five features were present in 50% of children: hepatomegaly (64%), splenomegaly (61%), pallor (54%), fever (53%) and bruising (52%).[] Others—hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and petechiae, for example—are more specific for leukaemia, and hence of greater value as potential red flags.[]

  • Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension

    Pulmonary ossification syndrome is a rare disease characterized by bone tissue formation in the lung parenchyma with or without bone marrow elements. This disorder, often under-recognized, can be idiopathic or secondary to an underlying chronic disorder such as chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. The[…][]

  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome in a child with fever and hepatomegaly MORINAGA Shingo, TAKAKI Kazutaka, SADA Akiko, MATSUI Toshimitsu Rinsho Ketsueki 53(1) 83-86 2012[] Gastrointestinal findings are as follows: Hepatomegaly may occur with chronic active hepatitis due to hypereosinophilic syndrome Hepatomegaly may also occur with Budd-Chiari[]

  • Hypogammaglobulinemia

    Hepatic vein stenosis is a vascular complication that can lead to graft loss after liver transplantation. Although ascites frequently occurs as a symptom of hepatic vein stenosis, the development of severe hypogammaglobulinemia associated with hepatic vein stenosis has not been reported in the literature. An[…][]

  • Constrictive Pericarditis

    Examination revealed raised jugular venous pressure (JVP), pitting pedal oedema, muffled heart sounds, bilateral pleural effusion and hepatomegaly.[] Physical examination revealed only jugular venous distention. CT demonstrated a normal pericardium with pleural effusions.[] Conversely, preoperative hepatomegaly and concomitant valvular operation were associated with significantly higher mortality on both univariate and multivariate analysis.[]

  • Cardiac Tamponade

    Other signs of cardiac tamponade includes dyspnea, tachypnea, hepatomegaly, paradoxical pulses, and dysphoria.[] venous distention develop.[] Pearls: Beck’s triad (JVD, muffled heart sounds, hypotension), pulsus paradoxus, EKG changes, peripheral edema, and hepatomegaly are non-specific in the identification of[]

  • 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.[] There was significant pulsus paradoxus of 20 mm Hg and obvious jugular venous distention. The pulmonary examination revealed bilateral vesicular breath sounds.[] Signs Classic triad of pericardial tamponade: hypotension, muffled heart sounds, jugular venous distention.[]

  • 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[] venous distention, systemic hypotension, peripheral vascular disease Laboratory findings Hyponatremia, persistently elevated B-type natriuretic peptide and A-type natriuretic[] […] 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[]
