Behavioral changes such as irritability are common.[] The initial laboratory tests revealed anemia, leukocytosis, increased inflammatory biomarkers, high levels of transaminases, and hypoalbuminemia.[]

  • Gastric Adenocarcinoma

    With the development of complications, the patient may experience jaundice and peritoneal or pleural effusions, due to metastases or hypoalbuminemia caused by inanition.[] A slight improvement was seen in the skin condition but died of cancer cachexia 3 months later.[] […] in the stomach from esophageal varices or at the anastomosis after surgery Intrahepatic jaundice caused by hepatomegaly Extrahepatic jaundice Inanition from starvation or cachexia[]
