783 Possible Causes for Hepatomegaly, Recurrent Respiratory Infections

  • Pharyngitis

    It is characterised by : Sore throat Fever Enlarged cervical lymph nodes Enlarged tonsils and fatigue Other clinical manifestations are splenomegaly (enlarged spleen), hepatomegaly[] Recurrent respiratory infections in children: a practical approach for clinical work. Pediatr Pulmonol Suppl 16 , 144 –145. [Google Scholar] 22. Layani-Milon, M.[] Splenomegaly and/or hepatomegaly can be present in more than 50% of patients.[]

  • Niemann-Pick Disease Type B

    Most patients initially presented with splenomegaly (78%) or hepatomegaly (73%).[] respiratory infections Frequent respiratory infections Multiple respiratory infections respiratory infections, recurrent Susceptibility to respiratory infections [ more ][] This article describes a very rare presentation of NPD-B in an infant who had suffered recurrent respiratory tract infections.[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    […] neurodevelopmental delays, macrocephaly with a prominent forehead, coarse facial features with clear corneas, chronic congestion with snoring, wide-spaced teeth, short thick neck, hepatomegaly[] The early clinical characteristics were developmental delay, joint stiffness, coarse facies, recurrent respiratory tract infections, abdominal distention and hernia.[] In our case, MPS IIIB was diagnosed at an early age because recurrent wheezing and otitis media in conjunction with hepatomegaly were recognised as more than trivial findings[]

  • Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

    […] of the left zygomatic region; anterior nasal bleeding; pustulous non-itching lesions at the cervical region and posterior thorax; enlarged bilateral axillary lymph nodes; hepatomegaly[] Recurrent infections of the respiratory tract and urogenital tract are regularly described, and in fact pneumonia and sepsis are the most common causes of death associated[] Symptoms may be absent or may include lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, hepatomegaly, and nonspecific symptoms attributable to anemia (fatigue, malaise) and immunosuppression[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 6

    […] of Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome in a child aged 9 years whose diagnosis was suspected clinically by the combination of a dysmorphic syndrome, prominent ophthalmological signs, hepatomegaly[] Furthermore, the airway can become narrow in some individuals, resulting in frequent respiratory infections and sleep apnea.[] Hepatomegaly, corneal clouding, claw-hand deformities, cardiac valve involvement, decreased pulmonary function, and sleep apnea become evident as the child ages.[]

  • Fucosidosis

    He had a coarse face, hepatomegaly and generalized spasticity.[] We studied the mucociliary and systemic immune function in a 6 year old girl with fucosidosis and recurrent respiratory infections.[] Clinical features include angiokeratoma, progressive psychomotor retardation, neurologic signs, coarse facial features, hepatomegaly, and dysostosis multiplex.[]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Findings include peripheral edema, neck vein distention, hepatomegaly, and a parasternal lift. Diagnosis is clinical and by echocardiography.[] […] in children presenting with recurrent respiratory infections.[] […] rhythm (3rd [S 3 ] and 4th [S 4 ] heart sounds) augmented during inspiration, distended jugular veins (with a dominant a wave unless tricuspid regurgitation is present), hepatomegaly[]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 2

    Level II ultrasound showed cardiomegaly and hepatomegaly. The pregnancy was terminated at 22 weeks' gestation.[] Both the children had a history of recurrent respiratory infections and intermittent joint pain since early childhood.[] Factors such as recurrent respiratory infections, enlarged tongue and hypertrophic tonsils contributed to this (Table 1).[]

  • Ataxia Telangiectasia

    (NGS) was performed on an Iranian 5-year-old boy presented with truncal and limb ataxia, telangiectasia of the eye, Hodgkin lymphoma, hyper pigmentation, total alopecia, hepatomegaly[] We report the case of an 8-year-old girl who had experienced recurrent respiratory infection, cutaneous abscesses, and hepatosplenomegaly since the age of 2 years.[] This, in association with swallowing problems, makes them susceptible to recurrent respiratory infections.[]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    Some people with Pernicious Anemia may have an abnormally enlarged liver (hepatomegaly) or spleen (splenomegaly).[] In a rare case of Good's syndrome with pernicious anemia, one year after thymectomy, recurrent respiratory infections developed.[] Hepatomegaly and splenomegaly may be present.[]
