  • Pharyngitis

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

  • Niemann-Pick Disease Type B

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

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The early clinical characteristics were developmental delay, joint stiffness, coarse facies, recurrent respiratory tract infections, abdominal distention and hernia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[symptoma.com] Symptoms may be absent or may include lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, hepatomegaly, and nonspecific symptoms attributable to anemia (fatigue, malaise) and immunosuppression[merckmanuals.com]

  • 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[scopemed.org] Furthermore, the airway can become narrow in some individuals, resulting in frequent respiratory infections and sleep apnea.[ivami.com] Hepatomegaly, corneal clouding, claw-hand deformities, cardiac valve involvement, decreased pulmonary function, and sleep apnea become evident as the child ages.[egl-eurofins.com]

  • Fucosidosis

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

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Findings include peripheral edema, neck vein distention, hepatomegaly, and a parasternal lift. Diagnosis is clinical and by echocardiography.[merckmanuals.com] […] in children presenting with recurrent respiratory infections.[scielo.br] […] 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[merckmanuals.com]

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis 2

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

  • 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This, in association with swallowing problems, makes them susceptible to recurrent respiratory infections.[kennedykrieger.org]

  • Pernicious Anemia

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