606 Possible Causes for Hyperviscosity

  • Pyelonephritis

    Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is an uncommon inflammatory condition accounting for 1% of chronic pyelonephritis cases. Clinically and radiologically it mimics other renal space occupying lesions. Hence, correct preoperative diagnosis is not possible in all cases and nephrectomy is done in most patients. Renal[…][]

  • Dehydration

    Indian J Pediatr. 2011 Dec;78(12):1543-5. doi: 10.1007/s12098-011-0418-9. Epub 2011 May 4. Author information 1 Pediatric Allergy Immunology Unit, Department of Pediatrics, Advanced Pediatrics Centre, Post Graduate Institute for Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh 160012, India. Abstract Hypernatremic dehydration in[…][]

  • Leukemia

    The presence of glaucoma is known to be specific for the hyperviscosity syndrome.[] Paraneoplastic syndromes in malignant lymphomas manifest by anemia, hypercalcemia, blood hyperviscosity, cachexia and other less frequent forms.[] Multiple myeloma, complicated by hyperviscosity syndrome, was diagnosed by BUBLOT et al. (1985) in a 9-year-old dog showing on necropsy fluids in the cavities and moderate[]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Hyperviscosity: Emergent plasmapheresis B.[] Generalized malaise, fever, sluggish mentation, paresthesia, sensory loss, and infection can indicate hyperviscosity.[] Diuretic therapy should be avoided in patients with hyperviscosity.[]

  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia

    Because hyperviscosity syndrome can be lethal, it must be recognized and managed early.[] No manifestation of hyperviscosity syndrome was noted. Bone marrow biopsy disclosed the concurrent systemic involvement.[] Hyperviscosity syndrome is treated with plasmapheresis.[]

  • Polycythemia

    The first includes complications related to hyperviscosity. The second involves bone marrow–related complications.[] Polycythemia and hyperviscosity in the newborn. Seminars in Thrombosis and Hemostasis. 2003. 29:515-527. [Medline]. Spivak JL.[] In the neonatal period, polycythemia-induced hyperviscosity can lead to altered blood flow and can subsequently affect organ function.[]

  • Eisenmenger Syndrome

    Chronic hypoxia caused by Eisenmenger syndrome may result in polycythemia with resultant hyperviscosity and bilateral central retinal vein occlusion.[] Erythrocytosis is present in most patients, but excessive phlebotomy may cause microcytosis and exacerbate the symptoms of hyperviscosity.[] The hemostatic changes associated with the syndrome may lead to thromboembolic events, cerebrovascular complications, or the hyperviscosity syndrome.[]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    PLoS One. 2018 May 9;13(5):e0196117. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196117. eCollection 2018.

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    Arch Dis Child. 1991 Nov; 66(11): 1339–1345. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Abstract A higher frequency (25%) of gastrooesophageal reflux (GOR) has been previously reported in patients over 5 years old with cystic fibrosis compared with controls without cystic fibrosis. It was believed that GOR[…][]

  • Heavy Chain Disease

    Hyperviscosity. Nephrotic syndrome, cardiac failure, malabsorption. Peripheral neuropathies, carpal tunnel syndrome.[] Treatment of symptomatic patients includes chemotherapy and supportive therapy aimed at the correction of anaemia and hyperviscosity. Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia .[]
