312 Possible Causes for Hepatosplenic Amyloidosis, Scleritis and Episcleritis

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

    RA is a systemic disease and there are other manifestations of the disease: Eyes: secondary Sjögren's syndrome, scleritis and episcleritis.[patient.info] The eye can be directly affected in the form of episcleritis or scleritis, which when severe can very rarely progress to perforating scleromalacia.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Ulcerative Colitis

    Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an idiopathic chronic inflammatory disease of the colon that follows a course of relapse and remission. In a small number of cases, ulcerative colitis is associated with extra-intestinal features. Disease extent can be divided into: Distal disease (left-sided colitis): colitis confined to the[…][patient.info]

  • 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[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Psoriatic Arthritis

    Extra-articular manifestations occur infrequently, but may include ocular inflammation (e.g. conjunctivitis, episcleritis, scleritis, and iritis), oral ulcers, and urethritis[hopkinsarthritis.org]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Episcleritis is more superficial with blanching erythema on examining the conjunctiva.[arthritis.co.za] Deeper involvement with scleritis and iritis, causes a painful red eye, which does not blanch with pressure. Corneal ulceration may sometimes occur.[arthritis.co.za]

  • 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.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    The monoclonal gammopathies are a group of disorders associated with monoclonal proliferation of plasma cells. The characterization of specific entities is an area of difficulty in clinical practice. The International Myeloma Working Group has reviewed the criteria for diagnosis and classification with the aim of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

The cause of episcleritis and scleritis is unknown.[healthcommunities.com] A new classification is presented which is as follows: Episcleritis (217 eyes) Simple episcleritis (170 eyes) Nodular episcleritis (47 eyes) Scleritis (301 eyes) Diffuse anterior[dx.doi.org]

  • Bronchiectasis

    Abstract The British Thoracic Society (BTS) has recently published a guideline for the management of non-cystic fibrosis (non-CF) bronchiectasis in children and adults. This paper summarises the key recommendations applicable to the primary care setting. The key points are: Think of the diagnosis of bronchiectasis[…][dx.doi.org]
