331 Possible Causes for Malignant Ascites

  • Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

    BACKGROUND: Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is a major cancer in Egypt and worldwide and has many risk factors including genes involved in the immune response. AIM: we investigated the HLA-G 14bp gene polymorphism as a risk factor for NHL and its clinic pathologic features. The study involved 150 patients with NHL and[…][]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Breast

    Adenocarcinoma of the breast is a term encompassing several types of tumors such as ductal and lobular carcinomas. An asymptomatic painless mass is usually the only symptom in the early stages, whereas an array of constitutional and localized symptoms may be seen in more advanced disease. Mammography and other[…][]

  • Metastatic Ovarian Carcinoma

    Cytology specimens were taken from the portio, endocervix and endometrium of the uterus, ascites and vaginal surgical stump.[] Malignant cells were detected in the samples from the portio, endocervix and endometrium in two, three and eight cases, respectively.[]

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    […] then the presentation or symptoms related to the liver disease may include: localised pain and tenderness due to capsular stretching disordered liver metabolic function ascites[] […] low-grade fever 2 The most common sites of primary malignancy that metastasise to the liver are 2 : gastrointestinal tract (via portal circulation) colorectal carcinoma pancreatic[]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Ovary

    Normal cells purified from the malignant ascites did not show such amplification.[] Ovarian cancers primarily metastasize intraperitoneally and later become noticeable mostly due to increasing abdominal girth caused by malignancy-related ascites.[] Cytological examination of the ascitic fluid revealed malignant squamous cells (Fig. 4d ) but no adenocarcinoma cells.[]

  • Lymphoma

    PC is most commonly seen in abdominopelvic malignancies.[] The imaging findings vary from simple ascites to multifocal discrete nodules and infiltrative peritoneal masses. Various tumours and tumour like conditions can mimic PC.[]

  • Gastric Cancer

    A 71-year-old man diagnosed with advanced gastric cancer with malignant ascites was treated with nab-paclitaxel as a second-line chemotherapy.[] Direct peritoneal seeding can produce malignant ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdomen).[] Abstract Peritoneal lymphomatosis is a very rare disease of extranodal involvement of malignant lymphoma that is occasionally confounded with other peritoneal diseases.[]

  • Gastric Adenocarcinoma

    Direct peritoneal seeding can produce malignant ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdomen).[]

  • Malignant Ascites

    Malignant ascites accounts for only 10% of all cases of ascites. 80% cases of malignant ascites are secondary to epithelial malignancies of the breast, ovaries, endometrium[] Peritoneovenous shunts effectively controlled malignant ascites in 77% of patients.[] Abstract Peritoneo-venous shunting has been used extensively in the treatment of benign ascites and, to a limited extent, in the palliative management of malignant ascites[]

  • Pleural Mesothelioma

    We report the case of malignant ascites in a patient with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) whose symptoms were relieved by CART.[] Recently, a few clinical studies have reported the effects of CART for malignant ascites, especially in gynecological and gastrointestinal cancers.[] Our experience indicates that CART should be considered as a treatment option to control refractory malignant ascites regardless of the type of cancer.[]
