1,472 Possible Causes for Parasite, Splenomegaly

  • Schistosomiasis

    Schistosomiasis is among the parasitic diseases with the highest epidemiological importance in the world.[intechopen.com] Initial investigation showed signs of liver fibrosis, portal hypertension and splenomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The hepatosplenic form of the disease is characterized by periportal hepatic fibrosis, pre-sinusoidal portal hypertension and splenomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Schistosomiasis Japonica

    Author information 1 Jiangsu Institute of Parasitic Diseases, 117 Yangxiang, Meiyuan, Wuxi 214064, China. yixinliu@sina.com.cn. 2 Jiangsu Institute of Parasitic Diseases,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Usually, these patients will present with portal hypertension signs and symptoms, including splenomegaly, gastroesophageal varices, hematemesis, and ascites.[radiopaedia.org] Splenomegaly was noted in seven patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Hepatic Schistosomiasis

    This parasite swims freely in open bodies of fresh water. When the parasite comes into contact with humans, it burrows into the skin and matures into another stage.[ufhealth.org] Usually, these patients will present with portal hypertension signs and symptoms, including splenomegaly, gastroesophageal varices, hematemesis, and ascites.[radiopaedia.org] Periportal fibrotic bands and widened fissures Capsular calcification (parallel or perpendicular to liver surface) • Portal hypertension in advanced disease Splenomegaly and[radiologykey.com]

  • Plasmodium Falciparum Malaria

    Abstract Two black African immigrants, with no history of recent travel outside France, received a diagnosis of a malignant lymphoproliferative disorder and splenomegaly,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , suggesting their potential role in shaping local parasite evolution.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mild splenomegaly was present on abdominal examination but rest of the physical examinations were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malaria

    The parasite was a major monkey animal model for developing antimalarial vaccines and investigations of the biology of parasite invasion.[doi.org] Abstract We report the case of a 12-year-old child who was admitted to our Department, with 7 days' history of high fever and splenomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] to no nets and in areas of stable malaria, ITNs also had an impact on severe malaria (45% PE, 95% CI 20 to 63), parasite prevalence (13% PE), high parasitaemia (29% PE), splenomegaly[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Splenic Cyst

    They are uncommon, comprising only about 10% of benign non-parasitic cysts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hegde Hospital, Mangalore, Karnataka Kishan Prasad HL Chandrika Rao Jayaprakash Shetty Keywords: Splenic Cyst, Splenomegaly, Epithelial Cyst, Marsupialization Abstract Cysts[pacificejournals.com] A computed tomographic scan of the abdomen revealed splenomegaly with a large calcified cystic lesion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Visceral Larva Migrans

    […] and non-parasitic diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Follow-up showed increased physical activity, improved respiratory status, and resolution of splenomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Remnants of parasites (eight Toxocara sp., two Capillaria sp.) were identified in the tissue in 10 patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Visceral Leishmaniasis

    Abstract Increasing evidence suggests that the infectiousness of patients for the sand fly vector of visceral leishmaniasis is linked to parasites found in the skin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Infantile VL may begin suddenly, with high fever and vomiting, or insidiously, with irregular daily fever, anorexia, and marked splenomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can be difficult to diagnose this disease in endemic settings as several causes of febrile splenomegaly exist, notably malaria.[bmj.com]

  • Leishmaniasis

    From the US Government Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Parasitic Diseases. eMedicine - Leishmaniasis Includes an introduction to the disease plus sections[curlie.org] Visceral leishmaniasis generally conforms to the following cardinal signs of prolonged fever, anemia, leukopenia, splenomegaly and hypergammaglobulinemia.[symptoma.com] The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there may be more than one million cases a year, caused by different subspecies of the parasite.[news.nationalgeographic.com]

  • African Trypanosomiasis

    Ablation of flagellar proteins in African sleeping sickness parasite; monstrous cells arise (main pic) & rapidly die as parasites fail to divide - Inset: normal trypanosome[web.archive.org] Lymphadenopathy and splenomegaly led us eventually to the diagnosis of sleeping sickness. After treatment with suramin his spermiogram returned to normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We demonstrate that HAT patients exhibit parasitaemia-independent plasma endotoxaemia, and that this is associated with splenomegaly and lymphadenopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
