546 Possible Causes for Hyperviscosity

  • 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.[]

  • Heavy Chain Disease

    (AIIMS Nov 2013) A Hypercalcemia B Anemia C Hyperviscosity D Elevated alkaline phosphatase Maximum ESR is seen in : (AIIMS Nov 2014) A CHF B Polycythemia vera C Multiple myeloma[] 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 .[]

  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia

    Of the immunoglobulin classes, IgM is most associated with hyperviscosity because of its pentamer structure.[] Hyperviscosity can precipitate heart failure that is exacerbated by concomitant anemia.[] Hyperviscosity syndrome is treated with plasmapheresis.[]

  • 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[] Rarely seen under the age of 40 years The symptoms are due to: Hyperviscosity. Hypervolemia. Hypermetabolism.[] Hyperviscosity in polycythemia vera and other red cell abnormalities. Semin Thromb Hemost. 2003;29:451-58. INTERNET Besa EC, Woermann U. Polycythemia Vera. Medscape.[]

  • Hepatitis B

    Consider a baseline assessment of blood viscosity in patients at risk for hyperviscosity.[] […] or cardiovascular and/or thrombotic risk factors, patients with impaired cardiac output, coagulation disorders, prolonged immobilization, or patients with known/suspected hyperviscosity[]

  • Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease

    On the one hand, these patients may suffer from severe hyperviscosity and subclinical 'sludging' in the peripheral vasculature with an increased risk of thrombosis.[] […] medial wall abnormalities including loss of smooth muscle, increased collagen, and duplication of internal elastic laminae. 1 This patient's symptoms were likely due to blood hyperviscosity[] Many causative factors, such as elevated haematocrit, hyperviscosity, chronic hypoxia, increased venous pressure, and glomerular hyperfiltration, seem to be involved in the[]

  • Leukostasis

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

  • Sclerema Neonatorum

    Caput succedaneum Craniotabes Crying - excessive (0-6 months) Failure to thrive Hemorrhagic disease of the newborn Home apnea monitor use - infants Hyperglycemia - infants Hyperviscosity[]

  • Coagulation Abnormalities

    A variety of coagulation disorders recognized and responsible causative factors have been postulated to contribute, including hyperviscosity, DIC, and primary fibrinolysis[] […] associated with several disorders of hemostasis: thrombocytosis and platelet hyperaggregability; increased plasma levels of factors V and VIII, and of fibrinogen with blood hyperviscosity[] Conclusion: over production of platelet microparticles and suppression platelet aggregation, both related to hyperviscosity, may play an important role in the pathogenesis[]

  • Secondary Parkinsonism

    Conclusions: As his symptoms improved with Ibrutinib, and they were caused by a hyperviscosity syndrome, he was diagnosed with Bing-Neel syndrome.[]
