Schistosomiasis, autoimmune disease, Wilson's disease, porphyria and hematocromatose
Cirrhosis is characterized by changes in the basic structure with the development of liver fibrosis and nodule formation. Fibrosis is an irreversible change, causing replacement of liver cells without cell function. Ultimately it is the reaction of the liver to external aggression. Often occurs in adults and is more common among 50-60 years old and is an important cause of death. Fibrosis can lead to circulatory changes leading to portal hypertension and esophageal varices, whose disruption can cause severe bleeding. You can still progress to liver failure.
Cirrhosis is the leading cause of death from liver nature, excluding tumors. Its main causes are alcoholism and chronic hepatitis (types B and C). Also can occur as a complication of obstruction of bile ducts, some chronic heart disease (congestive heart failure) or due to drug intoxication. Other possible causes are: schistosomiasis, autoimmune disease, Wilson's disease, porphyria and hematocromatose.
[...] Primary malignant liver tumors generally arise during the evolution of chronic liver changes. Tumors can also be secondary, represented by metastasis from other tumors located in the digestive tract, lung or breast. The very malignant tumor of the liver is the hepatoma or hepatocellular carcinoma. It is currently one of the common tumors affecting man, being related to hepatitis (types B and and cirrhosis. Your risk increases with age. Clinical manifestations of liver tumors are poor and can sometimes be pain. Physical examination palpa up abdominal mass. [...]
[...] Ascites can occur. The pseudocyst is a local training with high concentration of pancreatic enzymes and is due to obstruction of small pancreatic ducts. After clinical examination, the patient must undergo radiological examinations. The radiograph of the abdomen seeks to show calcifications. CT scans can show small calcifications and cysts. The dosage of amylase is generally normal. The secretin test to assess pancreatic function may be useful. Treatment is symptomatic aiming relieve pain, control of malabsorption syndrome and diabetes. In the treatment of pseudocyst or abscess may be the need for surgical intervention. [...]
[...] Treatment usually combines surgery with radiation and chemotherapy. Rarely the tumor is resectable in its entirety and the choice of surgery is total pancreaticoduodenectomy. CONCLUSION The liver is the major plant proteins, lipids and glucose. It is also the principal place of detoxification and excretion of drugs and hemoglobin ammonia ions metabolites. As such is exposed to potentially toxic substances, including some medicines. Liver reaction to this type of aggression is variable and may be asymptomatic or very severe with organ failure. [...]
[...] You can still progress to liver failure. Cirrhosis is the leading cause of death from liver nature, excluding tumors. Its main causes are alcoholism and chronic hepatitis (types B and C). Also can occur as a complication of obstruction of bile ducts, some chronic heart disease (congestive heart failure) or due to drug intoxication. Other possible causes are: schistosomiasis, autoimmune disease, Wilson's disease, porphyria and hematocromatose. Often the cirrhotic patient is asymptomatic and the discovery of the disease occurs during the performance of routine tests. [...]
[...] This may also derive from different types of hepatitis, cirrhosis and tumors. The pancreas can host important inflammatory processes such as pancreatitis, but mostly tumors whose incidence is higher in the elderly. References: Azevedo, JR Staying Young takes time .
