25 Possible Causes for Lactescent Serum

  • Hyperlipoproteinemia Type 1

    […] concentrations of triglycerides (up to 30,000 mg/dl) and a lactescent (milky) serum.[] Familial chylomicronemia syndrome (hyperlipoproteinemia type 1) is a rare, autosomal recessive inherited disorder of the chylomicron metabolism characterized by extremely high serum[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Neonatal diabetes is a rare form of monogenic diabetes characterised by persistent hyperglycaemia during the first 6-9 months of age. About half of the cases of neonatal diabetes are transient forms resulting from mutations in the genes in the imprinted region of chromosome 6q24 and the other half are[…][]

  • Monoclonal Gammapathy

    Pulmonary involvement in the course of systemic senile amyloidosis caused by non-mutated transthyretin is rarely described. We report on concomitant monoclonal gammapathy of undermined significance (MGUS) and amyloidosis with non-mutated transthyretin with diffuse lesions in lung parenchyma. A female patient, 67[…][]

  • Hyperlipoproteinemia Type 5

    Transport of very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) triglycerides (TGs) were studied in eight patients with type 5 hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP). Results were compared to those from patients with type 4 HLP. Type 4 patients had either overproduction of VLDL TGs (nine patients) or defective clearance of VLDL TGs (eight[…][]

  • Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia

    Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM) is a distinct B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder for which clearly defined criteria for the diagnosis, initiation of therapy, and treatment strategy have been proposed as part of the consensus panels of International Workshops on WM (IWWM). As part of the IWWM-7 and based on[…][]

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    As immunotactoid glomerulopathy (ITG) is a very rare primary glomerular disease, no standard treatment has been established. It has been reported that ITG progresses to end-stage renal disease at a high rate. Here, we report a case of ITG exhibiting nephrotic syndrome treated by administration of a single dose[…][]

  • Hypertriglyceridemia

    serum upon admission, and (3) the nondiabetic, nonalcoholic, nonobese patient with drug- or diet-induced hypertriglyceridemia.[] […] clinical syndromes have been described: (1) the poorly controlled obese diabetic with history of hypertriglyceridemia, (2) the alcoholic found to have hypertriglyceridemia or lactescent[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease

    The authors report a case of concurrent moyamoya disease and glycogen storage disease Type 1a that was successfully managed with bypass surgery. This 7-year-old Japanese girl, diagnosed with glycogen storage disease Type 1a at the age of 2 years, presented with repeated transient ischemic attacks. Cerebral[…][]

  • Multiple Myeloma

    Among patients with multiple myeloma, is bisphosphonate therapy associated with lower rates of mortality, vertebral fractures, nonvertebral fractures, and skeletal-related events compared with placebo or no treatment? Among patients with myeloma, bisphosphonates were associated with lower rates of pathological[…][]

  • Lipoid Nephrosis

    Minimal change disease (also known as MCD and nil disease , among others ) is a disease affecting the kidneys which causes a nephrotic syndrome . Nephrotic syndrome leads to the excretion of protein , which causes the widespread oedema (soft tissue swelling) and impaired kidney function commonly experienced by[…][]
