23 Possible Causes for Hepatosplenic Amyloidosis

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    A 65-year-old female had been treated rheumatoid arthritis (RA), interstitial pneumonia (IP) and nephrotic syndrome with prednisolone and cyclosporine. She was emergently admitted to our hospital due to the worsening exertional dyspnea and severe hypoxemia. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed new diffuse[…][]

  • Ascending Cholangitis

    Abstract An intussusception-type antireflux valve was created in the Roux-en-Y loop in 23 infants with biliary atresia (17 new cases, and six others after episodes of ascending cholangitis) and 10 patients with congenital bile duct dilatation, in order to prevent ascending cholangitis after hepatic portojejunostomy.[…][]

  • Ulcerative Colitis

    Ulcerative colitis (UC) is characterized by chronic inflammation of the large bowel in genetically susceptible individuals exposed to environmental risk factors. The disease course can be difficult to predict, with symptoms ranging from mild to severe. There is no generally accepted definition of severe UC, and no[…][]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Multiple myeloma is a blood cancer that starts in the plasma cells in the bone marrow. Bone marrow is the soft, spongy tissue found inside most bones. It helps make blood cells. Plasma cells help your body fight infection by producing proteins called antibodies. With multiple myeloma, plasma cells grow out of control in[…][]

  • Psoriatic Arthritis

    What is it? What is psoriatic arthritis? Psoriatic arthritis can occur in people who have psoriasis (scaly red and white skin patches). It affects the joints and areas where tissues attach to bone. The joints most often affected are: The outer joints of the fingers or toes. Wrists. Knees. Ankles. Lower back. Who[…][]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Pulmonary tuberculosis can be confirmed by positive bacteriology of sputum, bronchial aspirate or by biopsies (microscopy and/ or culture) or by histopathological examination highlighting specific tuberculous granulomas. When microscopy is repeatedly negative during noninvasive methods, lung biopsy by thoracoscopy is[…][]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    1 Recommendations 1.1 Secukinumab is recommended, within its marketing authorisation, as an option for treating active ankylosing spondylitis in adults whose disease has responded inadequately to conventional therapy (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or TNF‑alpha inhibitors). The drug is recommended only if the[…][]

  • Bronchiectasis

    We present the case of a 56-year-old male who presented with cough and breathlessness. Chest radiograph (postero-anterior view) showed bulla and signs of hyperinflation in the right upper zone with cystic shadows in the left lower zone. Spirometry showed severe irreversible airflow obstruction with restriction[…][]

  • Colonic Crohn Disease

    Abstract Immune mechanisms, possibly involving cell-surface molecules such as CD44, have been invoked to explain the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease. We used monoclonal antibodies against epitopes encoded within the variable region of CD44 to investigate CD44 isoform expression in colon, small intestine, and[…][]

  • Hepatosplenic Lymphoma

    Abstract Thirty-nine patients with lymphoma were evaluated prospectively to determine the usefulness of Ethiodol-Oil-Emulsion-13 (EOE-13) in the detection of hepatosplenic lymphoma by computed tomography. The detection rate in the spleen increased from 8% (before EOE-13 infusion) to 92% (after EOE-13 infusion). In[…][]
