Polyserositis


Presentation

  • To the best of our knowledge, this is a first report describing pleuritis and pericarditis as an initial presentation of mucinous cystadenoma of an appendix.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a brief review of the literature and attract attention to the need for close observation of patients with schistosomiasis who are treated with praziquantel.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a 46-year-old patient who underwent an abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for persistent trophoblastic disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a 19-year-old man who was hospitalized due to chest pain following a progressive osteolysis of the bony thorax. The disease later expanded into the pleura, peritoneum and pericardium in a form of massive chylous polyserositis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 36-year-old male of pure Japanese ancestry presented with a classical 20-year history of Recurrent Polyserositis manifested by self-limited attacks of fever plus pleuritis, peritonitis or arthritis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pleuritic Pain
  • Lupus pneumonitis Acute: 12% of active lupus fever,pleuritic pain,dyspnoea,cough, cyanosis B/L pulmonary infiltrates and effusion HP:alveolar damage,interstitial edema,hyaline membranes perivascular lymphocytic & plasma cell infiltrates- clear or persist[de.slideshare.net]
Fever
  • The authors report an unusual case of bilateral short term acute orchitis in a patient with recurrent polyserositis (familial Mediterranean fever).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] and caused by MEditerranean FeVer gene (MEFV) mutations.[readbyqxmd.com]
  • Question An 8 years old girl presented with recurrent fever for past 1 month. She had an exanthematous rash 2 months ago along with fever that subsided in 3 days. Now she has fever with chills and rigors for one week.[pediatriconcall.com]
  • A 36-year-old male of pure Japanese ancestry presented with a classical 20-year history of Recurrent Polyserositis manifested by self-limited attacks of fever plus pleuritis, peritonitis or arthritis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Normocytic Anemia
  • The patient had elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), increased C-reactive protein (CRP) and normocytic anemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • During previous treatment periods with amiodarone, the patient had experienced photosensitivity and dose-dependent polyserositis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The literature is reviewed and the treatment implications are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A case report describes an adolescent girl with a treatment-resistant bipolar disorder, who developed pericarditis and polyserositis while being treated with clozapine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report the first case (to our knowledge) of exudative effusive polyserositis following treatment of schistosomiasis with this drug. This involved pleura, pericardium, and peritoneum and was associated with acute respiratory failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • To the best of our knowledge, the wide spectrum of side effects, the short time lapse after onset of chemotherapy, and their severity are uncommon in a patient receiving her first chemotherapeutic treatment with MTX.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Some authors are of the view that it does not affect the rate of remission and survival while others relate it to a worse prognosis. [10] Cytogenetic abnormalities with poor prognosis in AML include complex karyotype, -5, del (5q), -7, del (7q), or 3q21[ccij-online.org]
  • Diagnosis is one of exclusion D/D Infective consolidation Pulmonary hemorrhage Treatment: acute-steroids,immunosuppressants if steroid unresponsive chronic-asymptomatic:no treatment;poor prognosis if PFT abn Prognosis: poor; 50% mortality sequelae for[de.slideshare.net]
  • The prognosis depends on the underlying disease, a chronic form - to the degree of development of adhesions and violations functions of the respective bodies. Treatment is primarily the underlying disease, usually complex.[medicalency.com]
  • Prognosis for life is dependent on the underlying disease, and the chronic form — on the extent of adhesions and the dysfunction of the relevant authorities. Treatment of the underlying disease in the first place, as a rule, complex.[survinat.com]

Etiology

  • Effusion analyses suggested an etiology of tuberculosis. The severe general condition of the patient allowed for no invasive diagnostic procedures. Antituberculosis therapy was administrated too late and was of no benefit.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Describes polverosa unclear etiology - the so-called periodic disease, family recurring P.[medicalency.com]
  • It may also facilitate prompt administration of steroids after alternate etiologies of inflammation have been ruled out.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]
  • When P. tubercular etiology on combined specific treatment streptomycin (1 g per day), Pasco (12 g), ftivazid (1.5 g). When polyserositis rheumatic etiology — antirheumatic treatment (Salicylates, antibiotics).[survinat.com]
  • […] the disease is a recurrent inflammation of the serous membranes, we have designated it "recurrent polyserositis." 9 Although usually of benign nature, recurrent polyserositis is sometimes fatal because of renal failure due to amyloidosis. 10-12 The etiology[jamanetwork.com]
