  • tuberculosis
  • Notable extrapulmonary infection sites include the pleura (in tuberculous pleurisy), the central nervous system (in tuberculous meningitis), the lymphatic system (in scrofula of the neck), the genitourinary system (in urogenital tuberculosis), and the bones and joints (in Pott disease of the spine), among others. (wikipedia.org)
  • Like tuberculosis, Crohn‟s disease also can result in granulomatous peritonitis13. (wikipedia.org)
  • Computed Tomography
  • Computed tomography (CT) is particularly important for detailed preoperative assessment and evaluation of the radiological Peritoneal Cancer Index (PCI). (wikipedia.org)
  • Computed Tomography provides direct visualization of primary and secondary peritoneal tumor. (wikipedia.org)
  • Multidetector Computed Tomography (MDCT) remains the modality of choice for primary staging, especially in patients with poor compliance for diagnostic examinations, providing a great deal of information about a large volume of tissue and permitting assessment of metastatic extraperitoneal disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • These values are 10% to 33% higher than those obtained with computed tomography (CT).3 Because the most common disease of the urinary bladder that requires further imaging is bladder cancer,4 the most frequent indications for MR imaging of the bladder are staging of a known bladder tumor and follow-up of a treated cancer patient.

  • The afflicted women may be asymptomatic, present with mild nonspecific symptoms, or may have fulminant disease. (medscape.com)
  • [ 3 ] Laparoscopy has been considered the standard for the diagnoses of PID, but it is costly, invasive, and has a reduced sensitivity in mild disease. (medscape.com)
  • infection
  • The frequency of infection is related to the type of underlying neoplastic disease, and most infections occur in patients who are no longer responding to the therapy of their neoplasm. (nih.gov)
  • About 80% of patients with acute leukemia, 75% of patients with lymphoma, and 50% of patients with multiple myeloma develop infection during the course of their disease, and infection is the proximate cause of death in a substantial fraction of these patients. (nih.gov)
  • chronic
  • Imaging is therefore being increasingly used for the diagnosis of PID, particularly in patients with an uncertain diagnosis, in patients with chronic or complex disease, or in patients who have developed complications. (medscape.com)
  • extent
  • Appropriate determination of the extent of peritoneal disease is important as it changes the staging of disease, treatment plan and prognosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sagittal or coronal T2-weighted images may be obtained, if the anteroposterior or inferosuperior extent of disease needs to be evaluated. (blogspot.com)
  • radiologist
  • 1 The number of transplants performed each year continues to rise, 1 and the radiologist plays a key role in monitoring and diagnosing disease in this special patient population. (appliedradiology.com)
  • Signs
  • Any disease eventually shows of the signs and symptoms. (blogspot.com)
  • The mesothelioma cancer features its own symptoms, however they often appear after much damage is performed, and also the disease doesn't have many specific signs and symptoms. (blogspot.com)
  • infections
  • [ 15 ] In developing countries, sexually transmitted infections and their complications rank in the top 5 disease categories for which adults seek health care. (medscape.com)
  • cause
  • 9 While some diseases, such as hematologic neoplasms, cause neutropenia, it occurs most often as a result of the myelosuppression caused by antineoplastic chemotherapy, especially when such therapy is administered at doses designed to achieve maximum antitumor activity. (nih.gov)
  • stage
  • Treatment depends on a host of factors, especially patient co-morbidities and stage of the disease. (radiopaedia.org)
  • For localised disease ( stage I and II ) conservative management with IV antibiotics and rehydration usually suffices. (radiopaedia.org)
  • patient
  • It is critical to recognize the importance of laboratory examinations such as serum IgG4 level if a patient has a past history of rheumatic disease. (biomedcentral.com)

  • Spread
  • PID is a complex polymicrobial disease that is due to the ascending spread of pathogens from the cervix or vagina, most commonly Chlamydia trachomatis or Neisseria gonorrhoeae (60-75%) , which then spreads into the endometrium, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and adjacent structures. (medscape.com)
