46 Possible Causes for Miliary Tuberculosis of the Liver, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Miliary Tuberculosis of the Liver

    , Hepatology, Miliary tuberculosis, Radiology and Ultrasound examination Accreditation : Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) SciELO SA Science Citation Index[] Chest X-ray showed no lesion suggestive of TB but revealed a right-sided subdiaphragmatic pathology as the right hemi-diaphragm was raised and the costophrenic angle was blunted[] As his chest X-ray was compatible with acute respiratory distress syndrome in conjunction with the miliary tuberculosis pattern, steroids were started.[]

  • Disseminated Tuberculosis

    In miliary tuberculosis , the liver almost always is involved by acute granulomatous inflammation.[] At the time of diagnosis, fever 2 weeks plus 5 kg weight loss was reported in 16 (80%) patients, abnormal chest X-rays in 7/17 (41%), and positive sputum cultures in 10 (50%[] The diagnosis of intestinal tuberculosis can be difficult, since less than half of patients have an abnormality on chest x-ray and active pulmonary tuberculosis is evident[]

  • Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

    Pneumonia, recurrent Recurrent (more than one episode in a 1-year period), acute (new symptoms, signs, or x-ray evidence not present earlier) pneumonia diagnosed on clinical[] Toxoplasmosis of brain Recent onset of a focal neurologic abnormality consistent with intracranial disease or a reduced level of consciousness; AND Evidence by brain imaging[]

  • Spinal Tuberculosis

    If you are at high risk for re-activation — for instance, you have HIV, your primary infection was in the last 2 years, your chest X-ray is abnormal, or you are immunocompromised[] Often, the first indication of TB is an abnormal chest x-ray or other test result rather than physical discomfort.[] Non-contiguous infection is as high as 16% and a full length MRI scout is recommended.8 If not possible, full spine X-rays should be employed.[]

  • Malaria

    BACKGROUND: Plasmodium knowlesi is increasingly recognized as a cause of human malaria in Southeast Asia but there are no detailed prospective clinical studies of naturally acquired infections. METHODS: In a systematic study of the presentation and course of patients with acute P. knowlesi infection, clinical and[…][]

  • Lingular Pneumonia

    Miliary TB (blood-born foci) Scrofula of neck (lymphatic spread What is the definition of TB?[] 22) The image seen below is a magnified view of a lateral chest x-ray. The blue arrows indicate the left ribs and the red arrows indicate the right ribs.[] When available, it is chest x-rays are used for more definitive diagnosis. Primary treatment is antibiotics.[]

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    Fibrosis is the most common cause of portal hypertension, though there are several other causes (such as schistosomiasis, sarcoidosis, and miliary tuberculosis).[] What Causes the Obstruction Liver cirrhosis can cause extensive fibrosis.[] The intensive scarring of fibrosis obstructs the passage of fluids through the liver. Using our analogy above, the fibrosis is the "kink in the hose."[]

  • Internal Biliary Fistula

    Tubular form (considered by some a variant of A), involving the intrahepatic bile ducts. 46 While miliary tuberculosis of the liver is quite common and is said to occur in[] Abstract Tuberculosis of the liver is known to occur in the following forms: 1.[] Miliary, as a part of a generalized miliary tuberculosis, or terminally, in those dying of pulmonary tuberculosis. 2. Local: A.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    Miliary tuberculosis appears due to hematogenous dissemination of Koch bacilli, local (lung) (Figure 2) or distant (most common kidneys, liver, spleen, meninges).[] Radiographic features Chest X-ray abnormalities are nearly always found. However in the presence of HIV infection, a normal X-ray is more common.[] 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[]

  • Liver Abscess

    […] is usually noted in association with pulmonary disease or miliary tuberculosis.[] USGM of the liver X-Ray of the chest to see whether there is any pneumonitis or effusion caused by the irritation of the nearby abscess TC -Leukocytosis LFT - Abnormal liver[] Keywords Isolated tubercular liver abscess; Subcapsular liver abscess; Extrapulmonary tuberculosis; Differential diagnosis Introduction Hepatic involvement in tuberculosis[]
