Directory of Open Access Journals Sweden. Full Text Available Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis IPH is a rare complex entity characterized clinically by acute or recurrent episodes of hemoptysis secondary to diffuse alveolar hemorrhage.

The radiographic features are variable, including diffuse alveolar-type infiltrates, and interstitial reticular and micronodular patterns. We describe a 3-week-old infant presenting with hemoptysis and moderate respiratory distress. Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis was the first working diagnosis at the Emergency Heepatica and was confirmed, 2 weeks later, by histological studies bronchoalveolar lavage. Hemosiderowis diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis should be evocated at any age, even in the neonate, when the clinical presentation hemoptysis and abnormal radiological chest images is strongly suggestive.

A year-old man was admitted because of symptoms of lumbar pain. He was known to have chronic anemia with ring heptaica and diabetes melitus and to be in heart failure. Three months before he had been given 7 units of red cell concentrate.

On admission the outstanding features were brown discoloration of the skin, absent body hair, tachycardia, heparica and small testicles. He had a normocytic anemia, hyperglycemia and raised transaminases, hypogonadism and vitamin D3 deficiency.

The serum levels of iron, transferrin saturation and feritin were markedly elevated. Radiology of the lumbar vertebrae showed osteoporosis and sonography confirmed hepatomegaly. The known myelodysplastic syndrome MDS had fed to secondary hemosiderosis with heart failure, liver involvement, diabetes mellitus, hypogonadism and osteoporosis. The patient later hemosiderossi of the sequelae of hemosiderosis.

Even when they have not required transfusions, patients with long-standing MDS should be examined regularly for the possible development of secondary hemosiderosis so that iron-chelating agents can be administered as needed. Longitudinal analysis of hearing loss in a case of hemosiderosis of the central nervous system. To describe cochleovestibular aspects of superficial hemosiderosis of hepatiica central nervous system.

Hemosiderosis in cirrhosis: a study of 447 native livers.

Superficial hemosiderosis of hemosiderosi central nervous system is a rare disease in which cochleovestibular impairment, cerebellar hepatjca, and myelopathy are the most frequent signs. Two Sisters with Idiopathic Pulmonary Hemosiderosis.

Full Text Available Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis IPH is a rare cause of diffuse alveolar hemorrhage with unknown etiology. In the present report, the presentations of two sisters are described: Both cases had quite unusual presentations.

The first patient was 23 years of age, and had suffered from dry cough and progressive dyspnea for four years. Her chest radiography revealed diffuse infiltration. She died due to respiratory failure. The second patient was 18 years of age. She had also suffered from dry cough and gradually increasing dyspnea for two years. Hemosiderosos had partial pneumothorax in the hepatuca lung and diffuse infiltration in other pulmonary fields on chest radiography. IPH was diagnosed by open lung biopsy.

All these findings suggested that familial or allergic factors, as well as immunological factors, might have contributed to the etiology of IPH.

Pulmonary hemosiderosis due to mitral valvular heart disease. College of Medicine, Seoul Korea, Republic of. We report a case of biopsy-proven secondary hemosiderosis of the lung in a year-old hepqtica with mitral valvular heart disease. Both chest radiography and high-resolution CT demonstrated patchy areas of ground-glass opacity ; the former indicated that it was in both lungs, while the latter showed inter-and intralobular septal thickening.


These findings were reversible when pulmonary venous hypertension was corrected.

Nuclear scan of pulmonary hemorrhage in radiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis. Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosisa jepatica of unknown etiology most often occuring in children, is characterized by recurring episodes of alveolar consolidation.

Exacerbations of pulmonary hemorrhage coincide with episodes of alveolar filling; repeated episodes lead to progressive interstitial fibrosis and eventually to corpulmonale.

Serial nuclear scans of the lungs after injection of radiolabeled red blood cells should parallel the pathologic and radiographic findings. We observed the accumulation of radiolabeled red blood cells hemosiserosis the lungs on scan images, a finding not previously reported.

Celiac disease and pulmonary hemosiderosis in a patient with chronic granulomatous disease. Hemossiderosis, Dominik; Belohradsky, Bernd H. We report on a patient with the hitherto undescribed combination of chronic granulomatous disease, pulmonary hemosiderosisand celiac disease. The hemosiderosis hepztica with a gluten-free diet and glucocorticosteroid pulse therapy, but the restrictive lung function pattern remained unchanged. Transfusional hemosiderosis ; correlation of MR findings with clinical findings.

Parenchymal iron deposition occurs in hemochromatosis, while iron is deposited in reticuloendothelial cells after blood transfusions Hemosiderosis. In all of 13 patients 17 casesthe liver revealed low signal intensity equal to background noise. In 4 cases with serum ferritin level between andpancreas was involved in 2 cases, and other organ was involved in 1 case.

Alveoli are an answer to anemia. Full Text Available Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis IPH is a rare disorder triad of iron-deficiency anemia, hemoptysis, and alveolar infiltrates. A 3-year-old male presented with mild fever, breathlessness, dry cough, and bluish nail discoloration for 8 days.

He had required five blood transfusions in the hemosiderosiz 1 year last transfusion was given 4 months ago.

Respiratory system examination was normal. Several previous reports of hemoglobin were as low as 3. There were transient increases in the hemoglobin and normalization of red cell morphology with blood transfusions. The chest radiograph revealed symmetrical patchy infiltrates sparing lung apices confirmed on high-resolution computed tomography. Lung biopsy diagnosed pulmonary hemosiderosis interstitial lung disease with hemosiderin-laden macrophages scattered in the alveoli and areas of fibrosis in the alveolar septa.

The patient showed marked clinical improvement in 10 days of therapy with prednisolone. IPH should be listed in the differential diagnosis of a child presenting with unexplained hypochromic, microcytic anemia and respiratory symptoms.

Magnetic resonance imaging of transfusional hemosiderosis complicating thalassemia major. Tissue deposits of hemosiderin, a paramagnetic iron-protein complex, resulted in marked abnormalities of magnetic resonance MR spin-echo signal intensity within the viscera of three children with transfusional hemosiderosis and thalassemia major.

In all patients the liver and bone marrow demonstrated abnormally low spin-echo intensities and the kidneys and muscles had abnormally high intensities. MR imaging is sensitive to the tissue deposition of hemosiderin, and MR intensity appears to provide a rough measure of the amount of iron deposited.

Increased IgD milk antibody responses in a patient with Down’s syndrome, pulmonary hemosiderosis and cor pulmonale. IgD antibody responses to cow’s milk were investigated in a two-year-old black boy with evidence of pulmonary hemosiderosis hemosiderksis pulmonary hypertension. Initially a broad spectrum of immunologic responses to cow’s milk were observed including IgD, IgE, and precipitin antibodies.

Specific IgD antibody responses to cow’s milk could be modulated in terms of challenge or elimination and correlated with the clinical course. hemosidedosis

It is possible that IgD antibodies may be important in milk-related pulmonary hemosiderosis. CT findings of transfusional hemosiderosis in patients with chronic renal failure: The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether there is any correlation between the CT features of hempsiderosis and clinical findings in patients with chronic renal failure who have received multiple blood transfusion.

Among chronic renal failure patients who had undergone long-tern dialysis and received multiple blood transfusions, CT findings in hemoziderosis cases in which increased liver attenuation was seen on images obtained for other purpose, were analyzed by three radiologic specialists.

The attenuation values of liver, spleen and pancreas heptica with that of back muscle were correlated with the amount and duration of transfusion, and blood ferritin level. There is no correlation between the CT features of hemosiderosis and clinical findings. In patients with chronic renal failure and no clinical symptoms, the status of iron overload was relatively easily detected on CT. Close observation of CT findings jemosiderosis thus thought to prevent significant permanent functional deformity of organs in patients with chronic renal failure who have received multiple blood transfusions.

Use of sodium chromate Cr51 in hemosideroxis childhood idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis. The diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis IPH may be elusive.

A 6-year-old boy had microcytic hypochromic anemia and a hemolytic component. Hemosiderin-laden macrophages were not found in the gastric aspirate.

He had no pulmonary signs or symptoms. Extensive hematologic and roentgenologic investigations failed to reveal the cause of the anemia. The half-life of the RBCs was moderately decreased half-life, 15 days; normal, 25 to 35 days. An open-lung biopsy spece Cr An open-lung biopsy specimen confirmed the diagnosis of IPH.

A diagnosis of IPH should be considered when children have iron deficiency anemia and pulmonary signs or symptoms. Organ sequestration studies may be helpful in equivocal cases. Idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis IPH is a rare disease characterized by the triad of hemoptysis, pulmonary infiltrates on chest radiograph, and anemia. Its diagnosis should be considered in any child presenting with moderate to severe anemia and failure to thrive of unclear etiology.

Consideration of the differential diagnosis in such a child should include the review of both extravascular and intravascular causes of hemolysis. Systemic treatment of IPH with glucocorticoids uepatica been shown to decrease morbidity, mortality, and disease progression to pulmonary fibrosis. Thus, diagnostic delays can impact prognosis. Here, we present hemosiderlsis case of a month-old boy with IPH who presented with anemia, jaundice, and failure to thrive, as well as a history of hemoptysis that was not initially elicited.

It is characterized by triad of hemoptysis, anemia, and alveolar opacity on radiology. Though it is a disease primarily affecting children, we hereby report a case of IPH in an adult patient who responded dramatically to oral corticosteroid. Necropsies were conducted on a female blue-fronted Amazon Amazona aestiva and a female yellow-headed Amazon Amazona oratrix that died after depression, ruffled feathers, diarrhea, and biliverdin in the urine. Gross and microscopic examinations revealed multifocal necrosis in the liver, spleen, lungs, kidneys, intestines, and heart caused by acute bacteremia.
