3,200 Possible Causes for Iron Decreased, Patchy Areas of Villous Atrophy, Xeroderma

  • Tropical Sprue

    Furthermore, EME identified patchy areas of partial villous atrophy in 16 patients (5 CD and 11 TS) in whom standard endoscopy was normal.[] EME could help identify patchy areas of partial mucosal atrophy, potentially reducing the need for blind biopsies.[] CONCLUSIONS: EME identifies 3 characteristic endoscopic patterns that correlate with the presence of villous atrophy.[]

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    It is usually caused by deficient erythropoietin production due to a reduction of functional renal mass (see Overview of Decreased Erythropoiesis ).[] Erythropoietin (EPO) stimulates the production of new red blood cells and may decrease the need for blood transfusions.[] Other causes include deficiencies of iron, folate, and vitamin B12. Symptoms and Signs Patients with mildly diminished renal reserve are asymptomatic.[]

  • Myxedema

    Macroglossia is classified as true macroglossia, which exhibits abnormal histology with clinical findings, and relative macroglossia, in which normal histology does not correlate with pathologic enlargement. This report describes an atypical case of morbidity with massive macroglossia secondary to myxedema; the[…][]

    Hepcidin regulates systemic iron homeostasis by causing the internalization and degradation of ferroportin, resulting in decreased iron absorption in the small intestine,[] Deficient NER causes a group of rare genetic disorders including two autosomal recessive diseases, xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) and Cockayne syndrome (CS).[] Eskelinen S, Haikonen M, Raisanen S (1983) Ferene-S as the chromogen for serum iron determinations.[]

    […] due to bleeding and/or concomitant iron deficiency.[] Xeroderma pigmentosum, an autosomal recessive condition characterized by severe sun sensitivity, early skin cancers, and abnormal DNA repair, occurred in a 12-year-old Turkish[] Adults are generally healthy as bleeding decreases with age. Also, mortality is rare.[]

    […] anemia (significant decrease in number of red blood cells), which means decreased oxygenation of tissues and symptoms of fatigue and muscle weakness (Note: iron is the treatment[] Vitamin C also increases iron absorption in your body, which is crucial for healthy hair maintenance.[] Iron deficiency anemia can also occur due to increased bleeding and decreased nonheme iron absorption secondary to low vitamin C intake [ 6, 11 ].[]
