• renal

  • Shedding light on etiology of secondary polycythemia needs detailed history and physical examination with special attention to areas such as smoking by patient or exposure to smoke at home, living in high altitudes, congenital cyanotic heart disease, high oxygen affinity hemoglobins (family history), renal conditions (hydronephrosis {most common}, chronic glomerulonephritis, pyelonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, renal transplant).
