  • Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate

    Weight loss, cachexia. Signs Advanced disease: general malaise, bone pain, anorexia, weight loss, obstructive nephropathy, paralysis due to cord compression.[] Findings in patients with advanced disease may include the following: Cancer cachexia Bony tenderness Lower-extremity lymphedema or deep venous thrombosis Adenopathy Overdistended[]

Science 1987 ; 237 : 893.[] There have not been any cases of splenic inflammatory pseudotumors presenting or evolving with metastasis.[] Cachexia, defined as the presence of at least 1 of these findings, was noted in 35.3% of patients.[]

  • Carcinoma of the Prostate

    We present a case of small cell prostate carcinoma with hypercalcemia in a 75-year-old man. He was diagnosed as having stage T3bN1M0 adenocarcinoma of the prostate.[] Splenic metastasis. Prostate carcinomas usually occur after the age of 50, with a higher incidence after the age of 70 1.[] Clinical examination should be thoroughly performed and may reveal cachexia, adenopathy, or an overdistended bladder.[]

  • Skin Cancer

    It often has a paraneoplastic syndrome causing ectopic production of parathyroid hormone-related protein, resulting in hypercalcemia, but paraneoplastic syndrome is more commonly[] BACKGROUND: To investigate the association of DNA nucleotide excision repair (NER) defects with neurological degeneration, cachexia and cancer, we performed autopsies on 4[] The clinical spectrum encompassed severe cachexia in the XP-A (XP12BE) patient, numerous skin cancers in the XP-A and two XP-C (XP24BE and XP1BE) patients and only few skin[]

  • Islet Cell Tumor

    […] await a clearer delineation of the cause of the hypercalcemia.[] […] tumors, Castleman disease, gastrointestinal stromal tumor, splenic artery aneurysm and accessory spleen were selected in this pictorial review for differential diagnosis[] […] that spread serpiginously and then reveal central points of healing. [44] Hyperglucagonemia in patients with glucagonomas results in glucose intolerance (ie, diabetes) and cachexia[]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Ovary

    Hypercalcemia in association with mucinous adenocarcinoma of the ovary has not previously been reported. Such a case is presented.[] […] parenchymal metastasis and/or metastases to extra-abdominal organs (including inguinal lymph nodes and lymph nodes outside the abdominal cavity) and/or transmural involvement[] In advanced stages, the size and growth of the tumor can lead to: Abdominal pain and ascites Cancer cachexia Possible disruption of menstrual cycle Dyspnea due to malignant[]

  • Glucagonoma

    Hypercalcemia occurred when the patient underwent octreotide acetate long-acting release.[] Our current case underwent lymph node dissection, during which eight splenic hilar lymph nodes were detected and three were found to be with tumor metastasis.[] Tabs Content Clinical Overview Diagnosis Indications for Testing Pancreatic tumor Clinical symptoms of glucose intolerance, hyperglycemia, weight loss and cachexia, and migratory[]

  • Metastatic Ovarian Carcinoma

    It often is associated with hypercalcemia. The most common form of sarcoma in the ovary is the mixed mesodermal sarcoma or carcinosarcoma.[] Splenic metastasis primarily occurred years after surgery. Splenic metastasis was only detected in four cases when ovarian cancer was first diagnosed.[] CASE REPORT In April 2015, a 59-year old woman was referred to the Oncological Department after onset of dyspnea, tachycardia, polypnea and cachexia.[]

  • Leukoerythroblastic Anemia
