3,825 Possible Causes for Small Liver

  • Wilson Disease

    Diagnosis is confirmed by a liver biopsy (removal of a small sample of liver tissue) showing excessive levels of copper.[healthcommunities.com] […] biopsy – a small sample of liver tissue is removed and tested for excess copper Genetic testing – which is very helpful when positive.[chp.edu] Severe chronic liver disease with small, shrunken liver, splenomegaly and ascites. Fulminant hepatic failure haemolytic anaemia.[patient.info]

  • Sepsis

    A 60-year-old woman was admitted with sepsis, relative bradycardia, CT evidence of numerous small liver abscesses and 'skin bronzing' consistent with hereditary haemochromatosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metabolic Alkalosis

    Abdominal CT scan and magnetic resonance imaging showed multiple small liver lesions and multiple thoracic and lumbar intensities consistent with diffuse metastatic disease[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest computed tomographic (CT) scan showed small noncalcified parenchymal densities; however, bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage washings were unremarkable for a neoplastic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Astemizole

    The results suggest that CYP2J2 is involved in astemizole O-demethylation in both the human small intestine and liver; however, the contribution in the liver is lower than[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Expression of the immunoreactive protein with CYP2J2 antibody was detected in the small intestine and liver.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In humans, these inhibitors also reduced microsomal astemizole O-demethylation in both the small intestine and liver.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alprazolam

    Among the five marmoset tissues examined, P450 3A4 ortholog mRNA was abundant in livers and small intestines where P450 3A4 ortholog proteins were immunologically detected[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Among the marmoset P450 3A enzymes, P450 3A4 ortholog effectively catalyzed midazolam 1'-hydroxylation, comparable to microsomes from marmoset livers and small intestines.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Correlation analyses with 23 individual marmoset liver microsomes suggested contributions of P450 3A enzymes to 1'-hydroxylation of both midazolam (human P450 3A probe) and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Yersinia Enterocolitica

    A 60-year-old woman was admitted with sepsis, relative bradycardia, CT evidence of numerous small liver abscesses and 'skin bronzing' consistent with hereditary haemochromatosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Computed tomography and ultrasound imaging showed uncharacteristic multiple small lesions of the entire liver parenchyma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Drug-induced Fever

    This can make you more likely to get liver damage. Some drugs can cause hepatitis with small doses, even if the liver breakdown system is normal.[medlineplus.gov] Thus, the spectrum of types and severity of liver injury due to DILI overall is broad.[gi.org] However, most studies have been plagued by the small number of patients enrolled and less than satisfactory causality assessment methods used.[gi.org]

  • Pneumonia

    […] diabetes a weakened immune system, for example from chemotherapy or HIV a small hearing device inside your ear (cochlear implant) no spleen or your spleen isn’t working properly[beta.nhs.uk] Vaccination for pneumonia Some people can get the pneumonia vaccination from their GP: babies over 65 People with: a lung condition a chronic illness of the heart, kidney or liver[beta.nhs.uk]

  • Osteoporosis

    Vitamin D can also be found in small quantities in foods such as: fatty fish (salmon, herring, mackerel) liver eggs fortified foods such as low-fat milks and margarine.[betterhealth.vic.gov.au]

  • Anemia of Chronic Disease

    Hepcidin is a small liver peptide, that inhibits the cellular macrophage efflux of iron and intestinal iron absorption, binding to ferroportin and inducing its internalization[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hepcidin, a small peptide hormone produced mainly by the liver, acts as the key regulator of systemic iron homeostasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Tight regulation of iron is necessary because iron is highly toxic and human beings can only excrete small amounts through sweat, skin and enterocyte sloughing, and fecal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
