Edema is defined as an increase in the interstitial fluid volume and is generally not clinically apparent until the interstitial volume has increased by at least 2.5-3 L. It is useful to review some background pathophysiology before discussing the differential diagnosis: + +. Distribution of total body water. 67% intracellular; 33% extracellular Differential Diagnosis III: Complicated Hypertension. Rationale: Patient's description of headaches, swelling of the lower extremities, consecutive uncontrolled hypertensive blood pressures, combined with the potential for chronic hypertensive damage leading to organ dysfunction, provides rationale for this differential diagnosis Clinical Differential Diagnosis of the Edema= visible and palpable swelling caused by an increase of fluid content of the intertitium This is a symptom of an underlying disease and not a diagnosis Földi M et al.

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS The onset of COPD is insidious. Pathological changes may begin years before symptoms appear. The major differential diagnosis is asthma, and in some cases, a clear distinction between COPD and asthma is not possible. Some people have coexisting asthma and COPD. Other potential diagnoses are easier to distinguish from COP D2 The history and physical is very important because of a wide range of differential diagnosis in peripheral edema. Therefore, the timing of the edema, any changes with position, whether it is unilateral or bilateral, medication history, and evaluation for systemic diseases, are very crucial. Acute swelling of the limb within 72 hours is more.
Most common in slightly older age group (adolescents) and, unlike acute tonsillitis, does not resolve after 1 week.

Non-pitting edema occurs when excess fluid builds up in the body causing swelling that does not indent when pressure is applied. It usually occurs in the limbs, and often results from underlying medical conditions affecting lymphatic system function. Diagnosis of non-pitting edema involves thorough medical history review, physical examination. Abdominal swelling or distention is a term used for a number of conditions that cause the abdominal cavity to look bloated or enlarged. The majority of cases involve the stomach or the digestive.

The differential diagnosis of optic nerve head (ONH) elevation can make the difference between putting a patient through needless, expensive, risky tests and providing him with timely, life-saving treatment. The decision to order further tests rests upon the optometrist's confidence in the diagnosis, coupled with the relative risk of performing. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is an acute, major, life-threatening complication of diabetes that mainly occurs in patients with type 1 diabetes, but it is not uncommon in some patients with type 2 diabetes. This condition is a complex disordered metabolic state characterized by hyperglycemia, ketoacidosis, and ketonuria To assist in the diagnosis of superimposed preeclampsia, serum angiogenic factors were measured. The sFlt-1 concentration was 14 082 pg/mL and PlGF 58.7 pg/mL, resulting in a ratio of 240 . Because of this high ratio, a further rise in BP, progressive edema, and development of ascites, it was decided to terminate the pregnancy Differential Diagnosis. At first glance, these two patients appear to have very similar symptoms and a nearly identical, quite unremarkable physical examination. Both patients are quite young and in good general health. Their spinal X-rays revealed no obvious abnormalities, essentially excluding any major structural abnormalities Table 3: Differential Diagnosis of CT Ground-Glass Opacities in the COVID-19 Era. Kim et al ( 31) performed a meta-analysis to assess the diagnostic performance of CT and RT-PCR ( 31 ). For chest CT, the positive predictive value ranged from 1.5% to 30.7% and the negative predictive value ranged from 95.4% to 99.8%
The differential diagnosis for swelling includes all types of AE as well as urticaria, anaphylaxis, hydrostatic edema, oncotic edema, and less common syndromes and infections (1,2).A detailed patient and family history in combination with a physical examination is necessary to elucidate the etiology of AE As for visual symptoms, patients can present with decreased visual acuity, field defects, and a relative afferent pupillary defect when the disc swelling is asymmetric or unilateral. Differential Diagnosis: It is useful to separate differential diagnoses associated with ODE into unilateral disc edema or bilateral disc edema Red lesions are a large, heterogeneous group of disorders of the oral mucosa. Traumatic lesions, infections, developmental anomalies, allergic reactions, immunologically mediated diseases, premalignant lesions, malignant neoplasms, and systemic diseases are included in this group. The red color of the lesions may be due to thin epithelium, inflammation, dilatation of blood vessels or increased.

Clinical Examination and Differential Diagnosis of LE Edema. James McGuire, DPM, PT, CPed discusses lower extremity edema, its clinical presentation and etiology. Dr McGuire recommends specific tests and guidelines to recognize and prevent worsening of the condition. Watch this lecture if you do not want to earn any credits or certificate at. Diagnosis. To understand what might be causing your edema, your doctor will first perform a physical exam and ask you questions about your medical history. This information is often enough to determine the underlying cause of your edema. In some cases, X-rays, ultrasound exams, magnetic resonance imaging, blood tests or urine analysis may be. Patients were excluded if the edema was known to be due to nifedipine, intra- abdominal malignancy, hypothyroidism, or idiopathic cyclic edema. Family physicians obtained a history and performed a physical exam on all patients and recorded a clinical diagnosis for the edema. Initial clinical impressions included: venous insufficiency (71%)

One can form a facial edema differential diagnosis based on imaging and clinical manifestations. The facial edema is found to be a rare condition which is commonly linked with the acne vulgaris. The clinical presentation of this condition is consistent with symmetric, localized, non painful, non pitting edema over one's glabellar region. Pitting edema occurs when excess fluid in the body causes swelling that indents when pressure is applied. It usually occurs in the lower limbs of the body, and may result from localized problems with blood vessels, side effects of certain medications, or existing underlying conditions that cause disrupted blood flow or excess fluid retention Causes of Non-pitting Edema. In many cases, this type of Edema is a sign of a disease or a clinical condition that affects the thyroid or the lymphatic system. One of those diseases is Lymphedema, which consists of a swelling that occurs due to a build-up of lymph in the soft tissue. Lymph is a clear colorless fluid that contains white cells

Differential Diagnosis 1 ACUTE PYELONEPHRITIS Pathogenesis: Acute pyelonephritis is an infection found in the upper urinary tracts. E. coli, Proteus or Pseudomonas are the most common microorganisms.; The microorganisms move up along the ureters and can enter the bloodstream Signs that make a diagnosis of HPS unlikely include rashes, conjunctival or other hemorrhages, throat or conjunctival erythema, petechiae, and peripheral or periorbital edema. Clinical Assessment. If a hantavirus infection is suspected, a CBC and blood chemistry should be repeated every 8 to 12 hours swelling may be malignant or benign (Figure 1). A careful assessment of the patient is essential in diagnosis and management (Box 1). Examination of the patient can also often elucidate the cause of the scrotal mass (Box 2).

Performing a thorough differential diagnosis will allow the examiner to determine a probable clinical impression Cerebral edema is excess accumulation of fluid in the intracellular or extracellular spaces of the brain. This typically causes impaired nerve function, increased pressure within the skull, and can eventually lead to direct compression of brain tissue and blood vessels. Symptoms vary based on the location and extent of edema and generally include headaches, nausea, vomiting, seizures. Pulmonary edema. Severe pain increases the likelihood of serious etiologies. If the patient's general appearance is affected, it increases the likelihood of serious etiologies.
