18 Possible Causes for Pleural Effusion on Chest X-Ray, Splenic Metastasis, Wasting Syndrome

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma

    Chest X-ray lateral view showed a soft tissue swelling arising from the sternum.[] -Look for Homer's syndrome and wasting of the small muscles of the hand. · Patient 2 has signs of pleural effusion on one side. · Patient 3 shows signs of unilateral collapse[] Diagnosis Testing After physical examination and CBC, chest x-ray is often the first test performed.[]

  • Renal Cell Carcinoma

    There have not been any cases of splenic inflammatory pseudotumors presenting or evolving with metastasis.[] Cachexia, defined as the presence of at least 1 of these findings, was noted in 35.3% of patients.[] Consideration should be given to expanding the ECOG-PS to include measures for cachexia when applied to patients with RCC. References 1 : Cancer statistics, 2002.[]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Colon

    During an examination, he was sick-looking and wasted and had a body mass index of 20.[] During the autopsy, a general examination revealed severe cachexia and marked abdominal distension.[] He had no lymphadenopathy or stigmata of liver disease, human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS), lymphoma, or any mucocutaneous abnormalities[]

  • Cecal Adenocarcinoma

    ., Hemoperitonitis revealing an isolated splenic metastasis secondarily attributed to a caecal adenocarcinoma, Rev. Med.[] Patients with right-side colon adenocarcinoma usually present with cachexia, weight loss, anemia, and positive fecal occult blood unlike those with left-sided colon cancers[] Metastasis. 38 Lucke-Wold B...Cassim R 28579648 2017 9 Primary Pulmonary Lymphoma and Synchronous Cecal Adenocarcinoma: A Rare Occurrence. 38 Saqib A...Maroun R 28133582[]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Ovary

    […] parenchymal metastasis and/or metastases to extra-abdominal organs (including inguinal lymph nodes and lymph nodes outside the abdominal cavity) and/or transmural involvement[] Sometimes, a chest x-ray is used to detect metastases in the chest or pleural effusion.[] In advanced stages, the size and growth of the tumor can lead to: Abdominal pain and ascites Cancer cachexia Possible disruption of menstrual cycle Dyspnea due to malignant[]

  • Splenic Rupture

    CT imaging revealed marked gastric thickening and a 33 33 mm splenic metastasis, with subsequent gastroscopy demonstrating a large lesion at the gastro-oesophageal junction[] An urgent straight X-ray abdomen showed no evidence of pneumoperitoneum, whereas the chest X-ray revealed bilateral pleural effusions [Figure 1] .[] There may also be features of disseminated systemic disease, such as cachexia and haematological abnormalities as a result of hypersplenism, particularly where there is diffuse[]

  • Hilar Lymphadenopathy

    Shin SH, Jung H, Choi SH, An JY, Choi MG, et al. (2009) Clinical significance of splenic hilar lymph node metastasis in proximal gastric cancer.[] Chest X- ray and CT scan often show one or more well-circumscribed lesions with possible cavitation, accompanied by pleural effusion or hilar lymphadenopathy .[] syndrome and central nervous system (CNS) inflammation.[]

  • Metastatic Ovarian Carcinoma

    Splenic metastasis primarily occurred years after surgery. Splenic metastasis was only detected in four cases when ovarian cancer was first diagnosed.[] Chest X-ray revealed persistent massive pleural effusion (Figure 1B) without any improvement in clinical symptoms.[] Findings She presented with cachexia and tympanic distended abdomen with palpable bowel loops. Body weight was 43.2kg. Vital signs were normal.[]

  • Splenic Vein Thrombosis

    […] process produced by the splenic metastasis.[] Chest x-ray suggestive of right sided gross pleural effusion with shifting of mediastinum towards opposite side.[] Nephrotic syndrome usually is caused by damage to the small blood vessels in the kidneys that filter waste and excess water from the blood.[]

  • Malignant Ovarian Neoplasm

    Distant metastatic disease Malignant pleural effusion Pulmonary parenchymal metastases Liver or splenic parenchymal metastases (not surface implants) Metastases to the supraclavicular[] Sometimes, a chest x-ray is used to detect metastases in the chest or pleural effusion .[] Signs general examination – cachexia, lymphadenopathy, signs of pleural effusion abdominal examination – distension, ascites, palpable pelvic mass, “omental cake” metastasis[]
