847 Possible Causes for Iron Deficiency Anemia, Polyps

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    A logistic regression model was used to assess the association between a family history of cancer and the risk of colorectal polyp.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Laboratory findings showed no abnormalities, except for a slightly elevated C-reactive protein value and iron deficiency anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most colon cancers start as small polyps that do not cause symptoms. Screening tests for colon cancer are aimed at finding these polyps before they become cancer.[doctor.webmd.com]

  • Familial Adenomatous Polyposis

    The patient underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy under a preoperative diagnosis of multifocal gallbladder polyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 38-year-old lady presented with abdominal pain, diarrhoea and iron deficiency anemia. There was no history of colorectal cancer in the family.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Most patients are asymptomatic, but they may present with altered bowel habits, blood/mucus in stool, and iron deficiency anemia .[amboss.com]

  • Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome

    These polyps show confirmation by the presence of eosinophils and mast cells at the lamina propria upon histological studies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Because of iron deficiency anemia and occult gastrointestinal bleeding, she underwent a colonoscopic examination. Colonoscopy revealed multiple broad-based polyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Incidental findings while hospitalized included iron deficiency anemia, vitamin A deficiency, vitamin B deficiency, and vitamin D deficiency.[gastro.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Intestinal Polyposis

    Polyp Development Polyps in classic FAP develop during the first and second decade of life. Polyp development in classic FAP occurs in the rectosigmoid.[clinicaladvisor.com] The result is iron deficiency anemia, which can make you feel tired and short of breath.[mayoclinic.org] Often a single polyp is involved, but more complex situations are also encountered, including the well-defined pattern of polyposis.[books.google.de]

  • Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia

    The patient was found to have polyps on colonoscopy leading to genetic testing revealing an SMAD4 mutation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bevacizumab, a VEGF inhibitor, reduces epistaxis, telangiectasias, and iron-deficiency anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia types 1, 2 and 3 do not appear to increase the likelihood of such polyps.[ghr.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gardner Syndrome

    Polyp tissues from the three patients displayed the AB phenotype. This finding suggests a multiclonal origin of polyps in Gardner syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early diagnosis may prevent malignant transformation of colonic polyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Science 02 Sep 1983: Vol. 221, Issue 4614, pp. 951-953 DOI: 10.1126/science.6879192 Abstract Electrophoretic analysis of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase was performed on polyp[science.sciencemag.org]

  • Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome

    polyps (n 14).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Genetic testing Stool guaiac , to look for blood in stool Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) -- may be linked with iron-deficiency anemia Surgery may be needed to remove[medlineplus.gov] Genetic testing Stool guaiac , to look for blood in stool Total iron-binding capacity (TIBC) -- may be linked with iron-deficiency anemia Treatment Surgery may be needed[mountsinai.org]

  • Hypertrophic Gastritis

    […] pathological features are contrasted with Menetrier's disease and hypersecretory hypertrophic gastropathy, and a possible relation to solitary hyperplastic (regenerative) polyps[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A 76 year-old Caucasian male underwent a colonoscopy and an EGD for evaluation of iron deficiency anemia that required blood transfusion.[nature.com] There is a risk of degeneration of polyps to malignancy.[gastric.vsebolezni.com]

  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

    She also had large pedunculated polyp in the antrum and sessile nodular polyp in the body of stomach (Figure 3).[article.sapub.org] deficiency anemia and esophageal web in the post-cricoid region.[dovepress.com] Plummer-Vinson syndrome manifests as cervical dysphagia, iron deficiency anemia, an upper esophageal web, and atrophic glossitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Colonic Polyp

    polyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The result is iron deficiency anemia, which can make you feel tired and short of breath.[mayoclinic.org] If you have symptoms such as rectal bleeding, altered bowel habit, have been found to have unexplained iron deficiency anemia or a positive test for hidden blood in your stool[arizonadigestivehealth.com]
