221 Possible Causes for Splenic Vein Thrombosis

  • Dehydration

    About 60% of your body is water, and it's just as important to your health as oxygen. Drinking water every day helps you form saliva for digestion and keep cells growing. It also hydrates your joints, keeps your body temperature in check, and moves waste out of your body. When you lose more water than you[…][]

  • Omphalitis

    BACKGROUND: There is an increased risk of serious neonatal infection arising through exposure of the umbilical cord to invasive pathogen in home and facility births where hygienic practices are difficult to achieve. The World Health Organization currently recommends 'dry cord care' because of insufficient data in[…][]

  • Splenic Vein Thrombosis

    Splenic vein thrombosis (SVT) is thrombotic occlusion of the splenic vein.[] Our data suggest that localized portal hypertension induced by splenic vein thrombosis is appropriately treated by splenectomy.[] Our literature search revealed that pancreatic pathology is overwhelmingly the contributing factor to splenic vein thrombosis.[]

  • Gastric Varices

    Splenic vein thrombosis can lead to gastric varices. Subsequent upper gastrointestinal bleeding may ensue related to the change in venous outflow to the portal system.[] Splenic vein thrombosis is the most common causes of IGV [6].[] Endoscopic surveys to identify the origin of the bleeding revealed gastric varices secondarily attributed to splenic vein thrombosis.[]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    Sickle cell disease (SCD) usually manifests early in childhood. For the first 6 months of life, infants are protected largely by elevated levels of Hb F; soon thereafter, the condition becomes evident. The most common clinical manifestation of SCD is vaso-occlusive crisis. A vaso-occlusive crisis occurs when the[…][]

  • Sickle Cell Crisis

    Pain-behavior contracts can be utilized as an alternative method of managing the discomfort experienced by adolescents in sickle-cell crisis. The psychological impact of sickle-cell disease, the developmental need of adolescents to control situations in which they find themselves, and principles of pain control all[…][]

  • Schistosomiasis

    Systemic The patient may initially complain of abdominal pain, diarrhea or dysentery and fever. Blood tests may reveal eosinophilia. He may also complain of fatigue, lethargy and skin sores and itching. CNS Neurological involvement may present with headaches, nausea, paresthesia, seizures, signs of muscle weakness and[…][]

  • Schistosomiasis Japonica

    Due to the elimination of intermediate hosts and the improvement of clinical care, most parasitic infections have been effectively controlled in developing countries. Recently, the increase of the worldwide tourism, especially to Mainland China, and the migration of overseas workers from endemic countries have led to[…][]

  • Superior Mesenteric Vein Thrombosis

    The recognition in nephrotic syndrome complicated with portal, splenic and superior mesenteric vein thrombosis should be emphasized.[] Partial portal vein thrombosis was also present on the initial CDU in 2 patients (40%), and nonocclusive splenic vein thrombosis was present in 1 (20%).[] A dynamic computed tomographic scan was performed and showed a splenic and superior mesenteric vein thrombosis.[]

  • Chronic Hepatic Schistosomiasis

    PLoS Negl Trop Dis. 2016 Dec 15;10(12):e0005232. doi: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0005232. eCollection 2016 Dec.
