530 Possible Causes for Hyperviscosity

  • Multiple Myeloma

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

  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia

    Because hyperviscosity syndrome can be lethal, it must be recognized and managed early.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hyperviscosity syndrome is treated with plasmapheresis.[symptoma.com] Plasmapheresis should be used for patients with symptomatic hyperviscosity and before rituximab for those with high serum IgM levels to preempt a symptomatic IgM flare.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Heavy Chain Disease

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

  • Polycythemia

    .  Symptoms of PV are often insidious in onset, and they are often related to blood hyperviscosity.  Symptoms are related to 1. hyperviscosity 2. sludging of blood flow[slideshare.net] Rarely seen under the age of 40 years The symptoms are due to: Hyperviscosity.

  • Leukostasis

    The management includes hydration, cytoreduction, prevention of tumor lysis and, rarely, leukapheresis in cases complicated by leukostasis and hyperviscosity syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Leukostasis is a reduction in blood flow related to hyperviscosity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] doi: 10.1097/01.ccm.0000440532.52819.78 Poster Session: Case Reports: PDF Only Abstract Article Metrics Metrics Introduction: Hyperviscosity syndrome (HVS) refers to a combination[journals.lww.com]

  • Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    In all patients, hydroxyurea improved symptoms of hyperviscosity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In the current era, phlebotomy is rarely performed in these patients except in cases of hemoptysis or hyperviscosity symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, at highly increased hematocrit levels patients may experience hyperviscosity symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    The possible role of MC vasculitis and plasma hyperviscosity in the pathogenesis of CH is also discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
