191 Possible Causes for Lipase Increased, Malabsorption Syndrome

  • Pancreatitis

    Patient II had a persistent anemia treated with blood transfusions until POD 3, when laboratory tests showed increased lipase and bilirubin levels.[] syndromes/processes Perforated viscus Chronic pancreatitis: Ampullary carcinoma Cholangitis Cholecystitis Chronic gastritis Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) Crohn disease[] Our meta-analysis has demonstrated that both CTLA-4 inhibitors alone and combination treatment of nivolumab and ipilimumab could increase the risk of amylase or lipase elevation[]

  • Cholestasis

    In addition, bile salts are important in stabilization of lipid emulsions, which is important for increasing the surface area on which lipase works.[] Malabsorption Syndromes also often arise as a consequence of cholestasis as GI Lipid Absorption requires bile acids.[] Prominent features of cholestasis are pruritus and malabsorption of fat and fat-soluble vitamins.[]

  • Chronic Pancreatitis

    […] serum amylase level Increased serum lipase level Serum trypsinogen Tests that may show the cause of pancreatitis include: Serum IgG4 (for diagnosing autoimmune pancreatitis[] Malabsorption Ovarian cysts Papillary cystadenocarcinoma of ovary Thoracic radiculopathy Table 2 Differential Diagnosis of Chronic Pancreatitis More common Acute cholecystitis[] […] amounts are normal Diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting Fatty or oily stools Pale or clay-colored stools Exams and Tests Tests to diagnose pancreatitis include: Fecal fat test Increased[]

  • Pancreatic Duct Obstruction

    Serum amylase and lipase concentrations increase on the first day of acute pancreatitis and return to normal in 3 to 7 days.[] K90.2 Blind loop syndrome, not elsewhere classified K90.3 Pancreatic steatorrhea K90.4 Other malabsorption due to intolerance K90.41 Non-celiac gluten sensitivity K90.49[] Elevated levels—meaning at least a threefold increase—is a sign of pancreatitis.[]

  • Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma

    Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a highly aggressive malignancy that usually presents at a late stage. Common sites of metastasis include the liver, lung and adjacent lymph nodes. Cervical lymph node involvement has been reported previously but there are no documented cases of submandibular lymph node metastasis in[…][]

  • Malignant Neoplasm of Pancreas

    Pancreatic cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the pancreas. (Cancer starts when cells in the body begin to grow out of control. To learn more about how cancers start and spread, see What Is Cancer? ) Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is the most common type of pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic neuroendocrine[…][]

  • Pancreatic Disease

    Elevated levels should drop with successful treatment; subsequent increases indicate progression. Amylase and lipase levels are usually normal.[]

  • Pancreatic Insufficiency

    Physical and biochemical causes of EPI include decreased production and secretion of lipase, increased lipase destruction, pancreatic duct obstruction, decreased lipase stimulation[] The malabsorption syndrome was effectively treated by oral administration of pancreatic enzymes.[] EUR) lipase/kg/meal increases the coefficient of fat absorption in a cohort of infants 6 to 30 months of age.[]

  • Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction

    The diagnosis of pancreatitis was based on abdominal pain and her increased lipase serum (1052 IU/L; normal 200 IU/L).[] syndrome and adhesions.[] syndrome, and adhesions.[]

  • Acute Pancreatitis

    At delayed diagnosis (3 days) no enzyme was superior to lipase. The combination of lipase and amylase did not increase diagnostic accuracy.[] , DIC, hypocalcemia (from fat saponification), hyperglycemia and insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (from pancreatic insulin-producing beta cell damage), malabsorption due[] […] that is done as a single laboratory test for acute pancreatitis. 16, 19 - 21 Lipase increased earlier and to a greater extent than total amylase, and the peak activities of[]
