1,090 Possible Causes for Liver Biopsy showing Hepatocyte Necrosis, Patient Appears Acutely Ill, Positive STD Test

  • Hepatitis B

    During the incubation period and during the acute phase of the illness, surface antigen-antibody complexes may be found in the sera of some patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The antigen persists during the acute illness and usually clears from the circulation during convalescence.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The surface antigen appears in the sera of most patients during the incubation period, 2–8 weeks before biochemical evidence of liver damage or onset of jaundice.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hepatitis A

    Hepatitis A is a form of viral hepatitis, caused by the hepatitis A virus, a single-stranded, positive-sense, linear RNA enterovirus of the Picornaviridae family. The virus spreads by the fecal-oral route and infections often occur in conditions of poor sanitation. The incubation period usually lasts 2 to 6 weeks.[…][symptoma.com]

  • Gonorrhea

    The possibility that positive test results may be false should be considered when patients have unanticipated positive test results.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Next Steps After Testing Positive for Gonorrhea or Chlamydia Data and Surveillance California STD Data National STD Data Resources for Providers CDC Division of STD Prevention[cdph.ca.gov] Before conducting a follow-up of a positive STD-test result, public health professionals should consult the patient’s health-care provider if possible to verify the diagnosis[cdc.gov]

  • Viral Hepatitis

    It usually shows focal, sometimes extensive, hemorrhagic or coagulative necrosis of the hepatocytes with limited infammatory response (Figure 2).[doi.org] Liver biopsy is essential to establish the diagnosis of HSV hepatitis, especially in pregnancy.[doi.org] In immunocompromised hosts, HSV hepatitis has occurred during primary and, rarely, during recurrent infection, with a triad of fever, leukopenia and markedly elevated liver[doi.org]

  • Massive Hepatic Necrosis

    Unlike their experience, our patient recovered without fibrosis or cirrhosis, although his liver showed not only macroscopic regenerative nodules in massive hepatic necrosis[nature.com] […] of the explanted small native left lobe but also fibrosis intermixed with remarkably regenerative hepatocytes in needle biopsies by 6 months after APOLT.[nature.com]

  • Toxic Hepatitis

    Aloe has been widely used in phytomedicine. Phytomedicine describes aloe as a herb which has anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, anti-aging effects. In recent years several cases of aloe-induced hepatotoxicity were reported. But its pharmacokinetics and toxicity are poorly described in the literature. Here we[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Weil's Disease

    Much disease is sub-clinical or mild, but patients reaching medical attention usually have an acute febrile illness associated with one or more of chills, headache, myalgia[doi.org] […] biphasic pattern in which a septicemic phase lasting around one week is followed by an immune phase during which antibodies are raised and organisms localize in tissues and appear[doi.org]

  • Aflatoxicosis

    Patients will appear ill with fever, jaundice, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and hemorrhagic diathesis, hepatomegaly, and elevated liver function tests.[visualdx.com] […] exposure to aflatoxins will produce acute hepatic necrosis from days to weeks later, but with multiple exposures likely in a terrorist attack, many victims will present with acute[visualdx.com]

    Missing: Positive STD Test
  • Yellow Fever

    Yellow fever vaccine-associated viscerotropic disease (YEL-AVD) is a recently described severe adverse event after yellow fever vaccination, and some cases have been reported in different countries [Anonymous. Effects of yellow fever and vaccination. Lancet 2001;358(9296):1907-9]. Herein we describe a YEL-AVD[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Patients with a "discharge," or possibility of having an STD, usually will have the discharge tested for STD organisms (for example, Neisseria and Chlamydia).[rxlist.com] A positive urinalysis is usually detection of about two to five leukocytes (white blood cells), about 15 bacteria per high-power microscopic field, and a positive nitrite[rxlist.com]
