We describe a complicated rare case of refractory right-sided pleural effusions and ascites
due to NRH and presinusoidal portal hypertension that was successfully treated with a transjugular intrahepatic portal systemic shunt (TIPS).
is a rare cause of turbid dialysate and has been associated with lymphoma, pancreatitis, and superior vena cava syndrome.
Non-contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the chest (Figure 1) revealed large right-sided pleural effusion, and contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis (Figure 2) revealed bilateral hilar adenopathy, ascites
, thickening and enhancement of the peritoneum, and mottled nodular-appearing soft tissue consistent with omental caking suspicious for peritoneal carcinomatosis.
Ultrasound findings that may increase suspicion of fetal midgut volvulus may include dilated bowel loops, intraabdominal calcifications, abdominal mass, polyhydramnios, gastric dilatation, and ascites
. Doppler studies can demonstrate an elevated peak systolic velocity in the middle cerebral artery due to severe fetal anaemia, secondary to haemorrhagic ascites
On physical examination, she was pale, emaciated, afebrile, and with abdominal distension for ascites
Evaluation at an outside hospital identified massive ascites
and concluded with a provisional diagnosis of cirrhosis on the basis of ascites
and the abnormal appearance of the liver on abdominal computed tomography (CT).
and chylopleura due to constrictive pericarditis are rare and characterized by white milky ascites
and pleural fluid.
She said, fatigue, vascular spiders, enlarged or shrunken liver, enlarged spleen, finger clubbing, ascites
and bruising are some of the symptoms.
A 32-year-old man presented with severe abdominal pain and ascites
. His medical history included diagnosis of Sandifer syndrome, scoliosis requiring 3 spinal surgeries, microgastria, and hiatal hernia repair, and most recently, laparoscopic cholecystectomy (7 weeks prior).
Keywords: Abdominal trauma, chylous ascites
Conclusion: Pigtail application is a safe and effective method for draining ascites
in patients with OHSS after ICSI treatment.
