1,962 Possible Causes for Sigmoiditis

  • Otitis Media

    Result High resolution computed tomography temporal bone offered sensitivity (Se) and specificity (Sp) of 100% for visualization of sigmoid and tegmen plate erosion.[] Dural venous sinus thrombosis, especially of the sigmoid sinus, is a known but uncommon intracranial extradural complication of chronic suppurative otitis media.[] Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed right thrombophlebitis extending from the sigmoid sinus to the jugular vein.[]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    Lower abdominal pain could be appendicitis or sigmoid diverticulitis, or it could have a gynecologic or urologic cause.[] Applicable To Colitis NOS Enteritis NOS Gastroenteritis NOS Ileitis NOS Jejunitis NOS Sigmoiditis NOS Type 1 Excludes Type 1 Excludes Help A type 1 excludes note is a pure[] - see also Gastroenteritis Gastrojejunitis K52.9 - see also Enteritis Ileitis (chronic) (noninfectious) K52.9 - see also Enteritis Ileocolitis K52.9 - see also Enteritis Sigmoiditis[]

  • Malignant Neoplasm

    […] colon Adenocarcinoma, sigmoid colon Cancer of the colon, sigmoid Primary malignant neoplasm of sigmoid colon ICD-10-CM C18.7 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s)[] In addition, malignant neoplasm in NAFLD group occurred more frequently at sigmoid colon than in control group (14.3 vs. 11.9%).[] […] colon Sigmoid (flexure) Excludes: rectosigmoid junction ( C19 ) C18.8 Overlapping lesion of colon [See note 5 at the beginning of this chapter] C18.9 Colon, unspecified Large[]

  • Appendicitis

    A nasogastric tube was placed and abdominal x-rays performed to rule-out bowel obstruction, showing distended bowel loops throughout all abdominal quadrants, with sigmoid[] Affected organs may include the cecum, bladder , and sigmoid colon. If the infected appendix leaks instead of ruptures, it can form an abscess .[]

  • Meningitis

    Cerebral imaging revealed a venous thrombus in the right frontal cortical veins and left sigmoid sinus.[]

  • Cecal Volvulus

    The presence of gas was not observed in the distal obstructed region, corresponding to a diagnosis of sigmoid volvulus.[] Sigmoid volvulus may occur because of sigmoid elongation, resulting in a redundant loop.[] Sigmoid colon volvulus is the most frequent, followed by cecal volvulus. The simultaneous occurrence of cecal and sigmoid colon volvulus is extremely unusual.[]

  • Mesenteric Cyst

    We approached the cystic mass from the sigmoid colon and the mesentery of sigmoid colon and completely resected it without complications.[] A mesenteric cyst originating in the sigmoid mesocolon is a very rare finding.[] Laparoscopic excision of mesenteric cyst of sigmoid mesocolon.[]

  • Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media

    Granulation/polyp tissue invaded the sigmoid sinus and facial canal at a rate similar to cholesteatoma.[] […] cholesteatoma, erosion of the outer ear bone canal, erosion of the middle ear chain, erosion of the dural plate, erosion of the lateral semicircular canal, erosion of the sigmoid[] Dural venous sinus thrombosis, especially of the sigmoid sinus, is a known but uncommon intracranial extradural complication of chronic suppurative otitis media.[]

  • Amebiasis

    Radiographic and colonoscopic examination revealed a stricture 10 cm in length localized to the sigmoid-descending colon junction.[] Two black African women and one black American man had carcinomas of cervix, perineum, and sigmoid colon, respectively.[] It usually involves caecum and ascending colon followed by sigmoid colon, rectum, and appendix. In severe cases the entire colon is involved.[]

  • Colonic Diverticulosis

    A manometric catheter, was introduced by rectosigmoidoscopy, with open ended orifices situated at the sigmoid and upper rectum, respectively.[] We observed an increased frequency of sigmoid and rectal inflammation, EIMs, and an older age of IBD onset in cases with diverticulosis.[] Males with long standing symptoms and sigmoid diverticula may develop colovesical fistulae.[]
