316 Possible Causes for Iron Deficiency Anemia, Steatorrhea

  • Celiac Disease

    In classical celiac disease , patients have signs and symptoms of malabsorption, including diarrhea, steatorrhea (pale, foul-smelling, fatty stools), and weight loss or growth[] To evaluate the proportion of children with moderate to severe iron-deficiency anemia who have associated celiac disease.[] Steatorrhea (foul-smelling, pale, bulky, and greasy stools) ranges from mild to severe (7 to 50 g of fat/day).[]

  • Whipple Disease

    Chronic malabsorptive diarrhea may also develop and lead to steatorrhea.[] Laboratory tests showed iron-deficiency anemia (Hb 7.5 g/dL, ferritin 111 ng/mL, transferrin saturation 7.8%, serum iron 14 ug/dL) and hypoalbuminemia (2.5 g/dL).[] Chronic malabsorptive diarrhea leads to the poor absorption of fat, causing steatorrhea (fatty, offensive stool), flatulence, and abdominal distension.[]

  • Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome

    The manifest include watery diarrhea with stool volumes of 4-6 L (sometimes accompanied by steatorrhea and melena), dysgeusia (distorted sense of taste), dry mouth, partial[] Because of iron deficiency anemia and occult gastrointestinal bleeding, she underwent a colonoscopic examination.

  • Thrombocytosis

    Previously, celiac disease was usually considered in patients who had signs of malabsorption and signs of gastrointestinal dysfunction such as diarrhea or steatorrhea, weight[] These patients were screened for iron deficiency anemia using the following criteria: Hb 12 for women and Hb 14 for men, ferritin 20.[] Of those with transient thrombocytosis, 5 were associated with iron deficiency anemia (IDA), 2 to polyarthritis, and the remaining 2 to digital ischemia and/or cutaneous vasculitis[]

  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Hemosiderosis

    Celiac disease may also cause flatulence, steatorrhea, and diarrhea, but the presence of these findings is not compulsory.[] We conclude that IPH should always be considered when investigating the cause of iron deficiency anemia.[] Here, we describe an 8-year-old boy whose isolated symptom on presentation was iron-deficiency anemia.[]

  • Hookworm Infection

    Reports from Puerto Rico and India conclude that steatorrhea is a direct result of hookworm disease.[] Anemia, iron deficiency, and hookworm infection were prevalent in this population.[] Abstract Studies on the metabolism of B 12 and folic acid were performed in patients with heavy hookworm infection and severe iron deficiency anemia, and in patients with[]

  • Duodenal Ulcer

    The patient's steatorrhea probably contributes to the diarrhea.[] Seventy-nine percent of recurrences are asymptomatic with cirrhotic patients. 17 Patients of cirrhosis of liver can present with hematemesis, malena and iron deficiency anemia[] In addition, achlorhydria (absence of intragastric acidity) may be associated with iron deficiency anemia, because the ferric form of iron must be converted to the ferrous[]

  • Carcinoid Tumor

    Stools are watery, frothy, bulky, or in the form of steatorrhea. Diarrhea may or may not be associated with abdominal pain, flushing, and cramps.[] She was treated with recombinant human growth hormone (GH) for complete GH deficiency, and endoscopy was performed to identify iron-deficiency anemia.[] […] erythema and edema, salivation, diaphoresis, lacrimation, and diarrhea Diarrhea and malabsorption (84%): Watery, frothy, or bulky stools, gastrointestinal (GI) bleed or steatorrhea[]

  • Blind Loop Syndrome

    A lady was admitted with a long history of steatorrhea, anemia and hypocalcemia due to a blind loop syndrome after a BPD.[] […] ogilvie's syndrome massive nonobstructive colonic dilation what is peutz-jeghers syndrome benign GI polyps and buccal pigmentation what is plummer-vinson syndrome esophageal web iron-deficiency[] , unintentional weight loss eventually leading to cachexia and nutrient deficiencies, such as vitamin B12, leading to megaloblastic anemia or protein deficiency due to steatorrhea[]
