241 Possible Causes for lipid laden macrophages

  • Erdheim-Chester Disease

    Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a rare form of non-Langerhans histiocytosis with deposition of lipid-laden macrophages in numerous organs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a rare non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis with lipid-laden macrophages and fibrosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Jaffe described the disease as a rare histiocytic disorder of adults characterized by an infiltrate of lipid-laden macrophages, multinucleated giant cells, inflammatory infiltrate[med.harvard.edu]

  • Bronchoscopy

    BAL was sent for gram staining, culture, gene expert and lipid laden macrophages examination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Peroxisomal Disease

    Major abnormalities are present in the liver (fibrotic), kidney (cortical cysts), and brain (lipid-laden macrophages and histiocytes in cortical and periventricular areas,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Adrenocortical atrophy with VLCFA storage in adrenocortical cells is identical to XALD and there are macrophages with abnormal lipid contents in many organs.[neuropathology-web.org] Lipid laden CNS histiocytes are less frequent than in the ZS.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Neonatal Adrenoleukodystrophy

    Patients with NALD demonstrate adrenal atrophy, systemic infiltration by abnormal lipid-laden macrophages, and elevations of saturated VLCFA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Adrenocortical atrophy with VLCFA storage in adrenocortical cells is identical to XALD and there are macrophages with abnormal lipid contents in many organs.[neuropathology-web.org] Lipid laden CNS histiocytes are less frequent than in the ZS.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Choledochal Cyst

    Xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis is an unusual inflammatory disease of the gallbladder characterised by severe proliferative fibrosis and the accumulation of lipid-laden[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] macrophages in areas of destructive inflammation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Refsum Disease

    Lipid-laden macrophages are seen in the cerebral white matter.[ajnr.org]

  • Orchitis

    macrophages.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Xanthogranulomatous orchitis (XGO) is a rare chronic inflammatory process characterized by destruction of tissue that is replaced by an outstanding cellular infiltrate of lipid-laden[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis

    'foamy' macrophages.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We have previously reported that the numbers of lymphocytes in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) samples in this disease correlate with levels of cholesterol and neutral lipid-laden[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Farber Disease

    Patients have granulomas along with lipid-laden macrophages that accumulate in a number of tissues, leading to multiple diverse clinical symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The tissues in afflicted individuals contain granulomatous and lipid-laden macrophages.[themedicalbiochemistrypage.org] The clinical course, granuloma with lipid-laden macrophages and accumula- tion of ceramide was characteristic for this disease.[dokumen.tips]

  • Action Myoclonus - Renal Failure Syndrome

    Consequently, AMRF patients do not acquire lipid-laden macrophages and do not show increased plasma levels of macrophage markers, such as chitotriosidase, in contrast to GD[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
