Causes Of Pleural Effusion.?
Mlm … Is there, a type of tuberculosis that causes fluid acsites in the chest cavity nperut
Hello, thanks for the question.
TB is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis, rod-shaped and resistant to acid staining. These germs are transmitted through the air or droplets. Symptoms that appear are usually cough for more than 2 weeks, coughing up blood, weight loss, fever, night sweats, and others. If not handled properly, there can be a buildup of fluid between the pleura (the membrane lining the lungs). Pleural effusion can cause symptoms such as tightness, coughing, fever, to chest pain. Some conditions that can cause pleural effusion include:
Sirosisatau decreased liver function.
Pulmonary TB rarely causes ascites or fluid buildup in the abdominal cavity. Ascites is more common due to increased pressure in the portal vein or veins that carry blood to the liver and then returned to the heart. Some diseases that cause ascites include:
Liver disease, such asisirosis, liver failure, and liver cancer.
Valvular heart disease
Spread (metastasis) of cancer from other places to the liver
Low albumin levels
Stomach wall diseases, such as peritonitis, peritoneal cancer, and vasculitis.
Disorders of the organs of the pancreas, bile, kidneys, and ovarian cells.
Because pleural effusion and ascites are complications of other diseases, if the disease is cured initially, the fluid contained in the pleural cavity and abdominal cavity will also be reduced. We recommend that you consult a doctor about the condition to find out the cause of the complaint, whether caused by TB infection or because there are other causes. Handling will be adjusted to the cause of the complaint that occurred. To avoid and prevent the increase in severity, it is recommended that you consume drugs recommended by your doctor regularly as recommended, eat healthy and nutritious foods, exercise regularly, get adequate rest, and control risk factors such as high blood pressure (hypertension), smoking, consuming alcoholic beverages, and exposure to hazardous chemicals such as asbestos, etc.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
