73 Possible Causes for Hepatomegaly Associated with Infection

  • Amish Lethal Microcephaly

    A new metabolic disorder characterized by severe congenital microcephaly, death within the first year, and severe 2-ketoglutaric aciduria has been found among the Old-Order Amish of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Amish lethal microcephaly segregates as an autosomal recessive disorder and has an unusually high[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    […] to infections.[patient.info] Liver: mild hepatomegaly and abnormal transaminases are common. Other: thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, depression, splenomegaly.[patient.info] Significant associated diseases and susceptibilities can further increase morbidity and mortality - eg, ischaemic heart disease and atherosclerosis, osteoporosis and susceptibility[patient.info]

  • Fibrolamellar Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Unlike HCCs they do not have an association with cirrhosis, alcoholism, or hepatitis B / C infection 2.[radiopaedia.org] Hepatomegaly is usually evident as these masses are typically large. These tumors are well-differentiated and well-circumscribed, with a dense fibrotic background 2.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Cholangiocarcinoma

    Nonetheless, heavy, long-standing infection is associated with a number of hepatobiliary diseases, including cholangitis, obstructive jaundice, hepatomegaly, fibrosis of the[doi.org] Moreover, both experimental and epidemiologic evidence strongly implicates liver fluke infection in the aetiology of one of the liver cancer subtypes—cholangiocarcinoma (CCA[doi.org]

  • Lymph Node Hyperplasia

    Associated infections include HIV and HHV-8, with HHV-8 thought to be involved in the pathophysiology of the disease in HIV infected patients. B.[clinicaladvisor.com] Most do exhibit peripheral lymphadenopathy, as well as hepatomegaly, splenomegaly and skin changes characteristic of POEMS syndrome (polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    Abstract We report on an eight-year-old girl with acute pericarditis and transient erythroblastopenia associated with human parvovirus B19 (PVB19) infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On physical examination, she had tachycardia, hepatomegaly, and muffled heart sounds.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dysautonomia

    Somatic neuropathy, systemic infections, and other HIV/AIDS systemic manifestations can suggest HIV-associated neuropathy. [29] Concomitant liver, renal, and cardiac disease[emedicine.medscape.com] Hepatomegaly, spider nevi, caput medusae, parotid hypertrophy, Dupuytren contracture, and other features of alcoholism may suggest a concurrent ethanol/nutritional neuropathy[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Lymphomatoid Granulomatosis

    Investigations failed to identify a source of infection; however, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging revealed hepatomegaly with periportal, gastrohepatic, and retroperitoneal[doi.org] A clinical diagnosis of azathioprine-associated pancytopenia with a concurrent non-A-E viral hepatitis was favored.[doi.org]
