522 Possible Causes for Hypoproteinemia

  • Intestinal Lymphangiectasia

    The diagnosis of PIL was finally confirmed by severe hypoproteinemia, endoscopic changes, and histology of jejunum biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Primary intestinal lymphangiectasia (PIL) is a rare disease of intestinal lymphatics presenting with hypoproteinemia, bilateral lower limb edema, ascites, and protein[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract The case of a 26-year-old female patient with abdominal pain, nausea, hypoproteinemia, enteric loss of plasma proteins, lymphedema, severe steatorrhea and malabsorption[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gastropathy

    Abstract We herein report the case of a 43-year-old man with distinct gastropathy and hypoproteinemia treated with H. pylori eradication therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patients, when seen, are usually in acute abdominal pain and vomiting or edema due to hypoproteinemia is present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The authors report an 11-year-old boy with generalised oedema and hypoproteinemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Protein Losing Enteropathy

    Although her seizures diminished, her course was complicated by hypoproteinemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory findings revealed severe hypoproteinemia with normal liver, renal, thyroid and adrenal functions and no proteinuria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The diagnosis of PLE should be considered in patients with hypoproteinemia after other causes, such as malnutrition, proteinuria, and impaired protein synthesis due to cirrhosis[doi.org]

  • Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome

    Dysgeusia was recognized and the degree of hypoproteinemia was remarkable. A barium enema study and colonofiberscopy also revealed an advanced cancer in the rectum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS: Hypoproteinemia and ectodermal changes improved postoperatively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 77-year-old man was diagnosed with sigmoid colon cancer after presenting with hypoproteinemia, nail atrophy, loss of scalp hair, hyperpigmentation, and gastrointestinal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertrophic Gastritis

    […] antifibrinolytic therapy with oral tranexamic acid (trans-4-aminomethyl cyclohexane carboxylic acid; trans-AMCHA), and four of the patients showed marked improvement of their hypoproteinemia[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Menetrier's disease is characterized by giant gastric folds with foveolar hyperplasia and cystic dilatation, hypoproteinemia, and enhanced mucus secretion.[joi.jlc.jst.go.jp] Hypoproteinemia may lead to ascites and pleural effusions. The exact etiology is not well known.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Primary Intestinal Lymphangiectasia

    The diagnosis of PIL was finally confirmed by severe hypoproteinemia, endoscopic changes, and histology of jejunum biopsy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Primary intestinal lymphangiectasia (PIL) is a rare disease of intestinal lymphatics presenting with hypoproteinemia, bilateral lower limb edema, ascites, and protein[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] With everolimus treatment, the patient's diarrhea resolved and replacement therapy for hypoproteinemia was less frequent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lymphocytic Gastritis

    Laboratory tests revealed severe hypoproteinemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both patients had markedly enlarged gastric folds and serum hypoproteinemia, which were clinically suggestive of Ménétrier's disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For this reason we report the case of a 48-yr-old female with HLG, hypoproteinemia, and H. pylori infection whose disease resolved clinically, endoscopically, and pathologically[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Capillary Leak Syndrome

    Laboratory values showed hypoproteinemia. IL-11 was stopped and human albumin was transfused at a rate of 10 g per day.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Blood laboratory data revealed severe hypoproteinemia with a small monoclonal IgG-kappa protein. These findings suggested strongly the diagnosis of SCLS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] INTERVENTIONS: He was treated with gamma globulin (2 g/kg) for 1 day, mannitol and furosemide to reduce intracranial pressure, human albumin to correct hypoproteinemia, methylprednisolone[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
