181 Possible Causes for Hyperactive Bowel Sounds, Patchy Areas of Villous Atrophy

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Acute gastroenteritis refers to an inflammation of stomach and intestines mainly caused by infection with viral or bacterial agents. Sudden onset of symptoms like abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea is characteristic for this condition. AG may run an asymptomatic, typical or severe course, depending on the overall[…][symptoma.com]

  • Tropical Sprue

    Furthermore, EME identified patchy areas of partial villous atrophy in 16 patients (5 CD and 11 TS) in whom standard endoscopy was normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] EME could help identify patchy areas of partial mucosal atrophy, potentially reducing the need for blind biopsies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CONCLUSIONS: EME identifies 3 characteristic endoscopic patterns that correlate with the presence of villous atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Food Allergy

    Lupin, a legume with good nutritional value, is used in food production today, most often in bakery products. Lupin sensitization is often seen among patients with reactions to legumes, but the number of reports describing lupin anaphylaxis is also increasing. To investigate the occurrence of lupin sensitization,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lactose Intolerance

    BACKGROUND & AIMS: Symptomatic lactose intolerance is common; however, abdominal symptoms that patients experience after ingestion of lactose-containing foods can have causes beyond lactose malabsorption. We aimed to determine whether symptoms that patients usually attribute to lactose intolerance are comparable[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Intestinal Obstruction

    Examination revealed hyperactive bowel sounds with scant fecal matter on rectal examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Physical Exam Physical examination findings include: abdominal distension (more prevalent in distal obstructions), hyperactive bowel sounds (early), or hypoactive bowel sounds[saem.org] Hyperactive bowel sounds occur early as GI contents attempt to overcome the obstruction; hypoactive bowel sounds occur late.[intranet.tdmu.edu.ua]

  • Small Bowel Obstruction

    On the other hand, if very hyperactive bowel sounds are heard they are indicative of mechanical obstruction.[symptoma.com] Signs Vital Sign s: Dehydration vs SIRS Criteria ( Sepsis ) Sinus Tachycardia Hypotension Bowel sounds Initial: High pitched, hyperactive bowel sounds Later: Hypoactive or[fpnotebook.com] Physical Exam Physical examination findings include: abdominal distension (more prevalent in distal obstructions), hyperactive bowel sounds (early), or hypoactive bowel sounds[saem.org]

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    The bowel sounds may vary depending on whether the patient has constipation (bowel sounds may be hypoactive) or diarrhea (bowel sounds may be hyperactive).[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Colitis

    Colitis is an inflammation of the colon. Colitis may be acute and self-limited or long-term. It broadly fits into the category of digestive diseases. In a medical context, the label colitis (without qualification) is used if: The cause of the inflammation in the colon is undetermined; for example, colitis may be applied to[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Large Bowel Obstruction

    At first, enteric stimuli resulting from the obstruction cause an increase in propulsive activity, causing hyperactive bowel sounds.[clinicaladvisor.com] Hyperactive, high-pitched bowels sounds at the beginning and then hypoactive bowel sounds as obstruction progresses and bowel muscles fatigue. Tachycardia. Fever.[clinicaladvisor.com] The end results can be bowel ischemia, necrosis, and/or perforation.[clinicaladvisor.com]
