10 Possible Causes for Miliary Tuberculosis of the Liver, Scleral Icterus

  • Cholestatic Jaundice

    Here the tubercle bacillus is said to reach the liver through the portal vein from the gastrointestinal tract rather than the hepatic artery as in case of miliary tuberculosis[termedia.pl] […] of urine and scleral icterus precede yellowing of skin Other causes of yellow skin carotenemia. carotenemia does not cause scleral icterus Hyperbilirubinemia per se has no[meddean.luc.edu] Jaundice detectable, when the bilirubin is about twice the normal range (2-2.5 mg/dl) Scleral tissue is rich in elastin, which has a high affinity for bilirubin Darkening[meddean.luc.edu]

  • Malaria

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    Fibrosis is the most common cause of portal hypertension, though there are several other causes (such as schistosomiasis, sarcoidosis, and miliary tuberculosis).[verywell.com] icterus Vascular spiders (spider telangiectasias, spider angiomata) Splenomegaly Testicular atrophy TABLE 2 Common Physical Examination Findings in Patients with Cirrhosis[aafp.org] icterus Yellow discoloration of skin, cornea, and mucous membranes Increasing serum bilirubin due to compromised hepatocyte excretory function Spider angiomata Central arteriole[pathophys.org]

  • Peliosis Hepatis

    The term was first used by Schoenlank in 1916 in describing the liver of a 33-year-old woman who died from miliary tuberculosis.[file.scirp.org]

  • Anicteric Viral Hepatitis

    Miliary tuberculosis is defined as hematogenous dissemination of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and the liver is frequently involved.[wjgnet.com] Physical examination is notable for scleral icterus, generalized jaundice, and hepatomegaly. Serologic testing is remarkable for anti-HAV IgM antibodies.[medbullets.com] Cholestatic jaundice has also been reported in miliary tuberculosis, and fulminant hepatic failure can occur, if only rarely[ 43 ].[wjgnet.com]

  • Klatskin Tumor

    Tubercular involvement of liver is rare and usually occurs in association with pulmonary or miliary tuberculosis, as diffuse involvement without recognizable pulmonary tuberculosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Physical examination found scleral icterus but was otherwise unremarkable.[acgcasereports.gi.org] […] is rare and usually occurs in association with pulmonary or miliary tuberculosis, as diffuse involvement without recognizable pulmonary tuberculosis or rarely in a localized[ijpmonline.org]

  • Liver Injury

    This patient was later found to have miliary tuberculosis (TB) with associated adrenal insufficiency, complicated by acute cholestatic liver injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On physical examination, scleral icterus was noted. Workup revealed elevated liver transaminases, alkaline phosphatase, and conjugated bilirubin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients should be advised to promptly report any new-onset symptoms such as scleral icterus, abdominal pain/discomfort, nausea/vomiting, pruritis, or choluria.[gi.org]

  • Granulomatous Liver Disease

    Tuberculosis per se can affect liver in three forms. The most common form is the diffuse hepatic involvement, seen along with pulmonary or miliary tuberculosis.[tropicalgastro.com] Physical exam revealed scleral icterus, generalized lymphadenopathy, and tender hepatosplenomegaly.[acgcasereports.gi.org] icterus Vascular spiders (spider telangiectasias, spider angiomata) Splenomegaly Testicular atrophy TABLE 2 Common Physical Examination Findings in Patients with Cirrhosis[aafp.org]
