39 Possible Causes for Right Pleural Effusion, Secondary Aldosteronism

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    effusion · Decrease in vital capacity by one third from maximum recorded · Tachycardia (heart rate 120 beats/min.)[] Anti-aldosterone treatment and the prevention of myocardial fibrosis in primary and secondary hyperaldosteronism. J Mol Cell Cardiol 1993 ;25: 563 - 575 37.[] X-ray of the chest: Possible findings include hilar congestion and bat wings appearance in the lungs, cardiomegaly, pleural effusion and evidence of pulmonary hypertension[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Pleural effusion Pleural effusion more evident on lateral view Pleural effusion is bilateral in 70% of cases of CHF.[] […] system activity ( RAAS ): activated following decrease in renal perfusion secondary to reduction of stroke volume and cardiac output Angiotensin II secretion vasoconstriction[] Decreased perfusion of the kidneys (and possibly decreased arterial systolic stretch secondary to declining ventricular function) activates the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone[]

  • Anasarca

    The right hemithorax showed small pleural effusion and thickening, in addition to a small nonspecific opacity in the right lung base.[] Loop or thiazide diuretics are often used, but aldactone may be effective in cases of refractory edema secondary to it’s aldosterone antagonistic effect which serves to decrease[] Chest imaging revealed bilateral pleural effusions with compressive atelectasis and lymphoscintigraphy revealed normal lymphatic flow with no thoracic duct leak.[]

  • Cardiac Cirrhosis

    There is also a right pleural effusion, ‘P’. Image (b) shows an abnormal appearance of the liver.[] […] system activity ( RAAS ): activated following decrease in renal perfusion secondary to reduction of stroke volume and cardiac output Angiotensin II secretion vasoconstriction[] […] ventricular dysfunction right and/or left atrial enlargement pleural effusion valvular stenosis or regurgitation sonographic pulmonary edema dilated ( 2.1 cm) inferior vena[]

  • Ascites

    Chest radiography shows a right pleural effusion.[] The resultant secondary aldosteronism causes retention of sodium and water.[] Ascites secondary to cirrhosis is explained by an excess of total body water and sodium, subsequent systemic and splanchnic vasodilation leading to stimulation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone[]

  • Malignant Ascites

    Topogram CT images demonstrate a large amount of ascites and right pleural effusions.[]

  • Nephrotic Syndrome

    Chest radiography and computed tomography scans revealed right pleural effusion and a mass in the right middle lung field, which were confirmed by a percutaneous lung biopsy[]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Ovary

    Surgery is performed to remove the ovarian mass, and the patient's ascites and pleural effusion resolve promptly. What is the most likely diagnosis?[] The initial assessment demonstrates that the patient has a right-sided hydrothorax, ascites, and a large ovarian mass.[]

  • Hypoalbuminemia

    […] concentrations and secondary renal sodium retention ("underfill" edema).[] […] to changes in cortisol, aldosterone, and antidiuretic hormone secretion 3.[] Instead, renin and aldosterone concentrations are suppressed relative to normal pregnancy.[]

  • Portal Hypertension

    A large volume of ascites and pleural effusion were observed on post-operative day (POD) 3, and ascetic infection occurred on POD 14.[] Her liver viability was preserved, and collaterals did not develop, and her tumor thrombosis forced us to perform a right hepatectomy from an oncological standpoint.[]
