565 Possible Causes for Hypermetabolism, Leukemia

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    Although chemotherapy is well known to potentiate the development of second acute nonlymphocytic leukemia, the pathogenic factors leading to second acute lymphoblastic leukemia[] However, some hypermetabolic conditions may mimic malignant neoplasms.[] Acute lymphoblastic leukemia as a second malignancy following the treatment of medulloblastoma is a very rare condition.[]

  • Leukemia

    There are basically 4 types of leukemia, namely: Acute lymphocytic leukemia, acute myelogenous leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and chronic myeloid leukemia.[] Other presenting symptoms and signs are usually nonspecific (eg, pallor, fatigue, fever, malaise, weight loss, tachycardia, chest pain) and are attributable to anemia and a hypermetabolic[] Leukemia Synonyms Leukaemia A Wright's stained bone marrow aspirate smear from a person with precursor B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia .[]

  • Polycythemia Vera

    To date, this case is the first description of a Breakpoint cluster region-Abelson murine leukemia viral oncogene homolog 1-positive chronic myeloid leukemia, presenting with[] Given the large turnover of hematopoietic cells, hyperuricemia with secondary gout, uric acid stones, and symptoms due to hypermetabolism can also complicate the disorder.[] Low-grade fevers and weight loss caused by hypermetabolism.[]

  • Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), also known as chronic myelogenous leukemia, is the most common myeloproliferative disorder.[] Some patients with CML have low-grade fever and excessive sweating related to hypermetabolism.[] Signs and symptoms in the chronic phase are as follows: Fatigue, weight loss, loss of energy, decreased exercise tolerance Low-grade fever and excessive sweating from hypermetabolism[]

  • Chronic Phase of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

    Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a myeloproliferative disease also referred to as chronic myeloid leukemia.[] Signs and symptoms in the chronic phase are as follows: Fatigue, weight loss, loss of energy, decreased exercise tolerance Low-grade fever and excessive sweating from hypermetabolism[] We present a patient with chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia who had acute compartment syndrome caused by severe soft tissue bleeding in her right forearm.[]

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    A 56-year-old male with chronic idiopathic myelofibrosis and cytogenetic finding of 20q- after a period of 10 months developed acute Philadelphia-positive lymphoblastic leukemia[] Clinical manifestations depend on the type of blood cell affected and may include anemia, pallor, splenomegaly, hypermetabolic state, petechiae, ecchymosis, bleeding, lymphadenopathy[] A hypermetabolic state occurs and can result in weight loss, night sweats, and low-grade fever. Gout and urate kidney stones may develop.[]

Connective tissue diseases were present in 2 (4%).[]

  • Pheochromocytoma

    Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia; Noonan syndrome-like disorder with or without juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia AD, Somatic mutation 10 HRAS 190020 Bladder cancer, somatic[] […] which can be persistent or paroxysmal • Headache due to cerebral blood flow affectation from catecholamine level changes in the circulation, more occipital than temporal • Hypermetabolism[] Hypermetabolism caused by catecholamines can cause weakness, fatigue and weight loss.
