2,610 Possible Causes for Shock, Ulcerative Colitis

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    […] resolution of features of shock at 8 and 24 hours.[wellcomeopenresearch.org] Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease), medication intake (e.g. antibiotics) or food intolerance.[link.springer.com] […] rapid intravenous rehydration, using fluid volumes of 70-100mls/kg over 3-6 h, with some of the initial volume given rapidly as initial fluid boluses to treat hypovolaemic shock[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pseudomembranous Colitis

    Both cases rapidly developed shock and blood pressure was uncontrollable except with the use of pressor agents.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A sigmoidoscopy and biopsies demonstrated mucosal ulcerative colitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This paper reports a case of fulminant pseudo-membranous colitis which did not lead to septic shock.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Clostridium Difficile

    This case provides the first report of a young healthy child presenting in septic shock from Clostridium difficile colitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We present a case of a patient with ulcerative colitis and recurrent CD infection successfully treated with FT.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although metronidazole was initiated, she developed altered mental status and septic shock.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage

    Patients often present in extremis from shock and sepsis. This mandates a rapid diagnosis so that prompt, potentially life-saving interventions can be performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are many possible causes of gi bleeding, including hemorrhoids peptic ulcers tears or inflammation in the esophagus diverticulosis and diverticulitis ulcerative colitis[icd9data.com] The most common underlying conditions are peptic ulcer, Mallory-Weiss syndrome, esophageal varices, diverticulosis, ulcerative colitis, and carcinoma of the stomach and colon[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Colonic Angiodysplasia

    There were clinical features of shock. Packed cell volume at presentation was 14%. She was transfused with 4 units of fresh whole blood.[njcponline.com] Some of these include Colorectal cancer Colonic polyps - extra tissue growing in the colon that can become cancerous Ulcerative colitis - ulcers of the colon and rectum Diverticulitis[icdlist.com] colitis and Crohn's disease, colonic polyps, or cancer in the colon, stomach or esophagus.[icdlist.com]

  • Diarrhea

    After admission, the patient suffered from hematemesis, hematochezia, ascites, anuria, and kidney failure, and he developed shock.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This occurs with inflammatory bowel diseases, such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, and several infections. What Causes Diarrhea?[web.archive.org] Rehydration: with intravenous fluids in case of severe dehydration or shock.[web.archive.org]

  • Cholangitis

    CONCLUSION: PCT could be a promising marker of clinical deterioration to septic shock in acute cholangitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] One case had de novo post-transplant ulcerative colitis refractory to two anti-TNFα drugs (golimumab and infliximab).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The circulatory failure encountered is that of septic shock and usually presents as a terminal event.[doi.org]

  • Toxic Megacolon

    Fluid and electrolyte replacement help to prevent dehydration and shock.[en.wikipedia.org] Infliximab has been tried in patients with severe steroid-refractory ulcerative colitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This is especially true when toxic megacolon is the initial manifestation of ulcerative colitis. In this setting, a previous history of chronic diarrhea may be lacking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amebiasis

    Aspiration is largely being replaced by percutaneous catheter drainage. [ 13 ] In patients unsuitable for percutaneous drainage (elderly, frail, septic shock, multilocular[patient.info] Additional clinical findings included hematochezia without diarrhea (four patients), dysentery with appendicitis (one patient), exacerbation of ulcerative colitis (two patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] levels Hypovolemia Management: Rationale: Reduction in extracellular and/or intracellular fluid volume and prevention of complications in a patient who is fluid overloaded Shock[rnpedia.com]

  • Sweet Syndrome

    […] joints, bone marrow, liver, heart, muscles, and spleen. [2, 11, 21, 34, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75] A few cases of systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) progressing to shock[emedicine.medscape.com] Sweet’s syndrome is considered to be a rare cutaneous disease in patients with ulcerative colitis.[link.springer.com] Intravenous methylprednisolone (1mg/kg/day) was initiated for suspected ulcerative colitis flare.[academic.oup.com]
