Differential diagnosis

The above-mentioned tissue helminthiases must be differentiated from each other, and in some cases (toxocariasis, trichinosis) - with the acute phase of other helminthiases (ascariasis, schistosomiasis, opisthorchiasis) and diseases, including allergic nature, accompanied by high eosinophilia.

Toxocariasis, depending on the prevailing organ changes, is differentiated with bronchial asthma, chronic obstructive bronchitis, pulmonary tuberculosis, pneumonia, atopic dermatitis, acute and chronic gastrointestinal lesions, pseudotuberculosis. Eye lesions with toxocariasis must be differentiated with retinoblastoma, chorioretinitis, tuberculosis, toxoplasma,
cytomegalovirus and other etiology, ophthalmocysticircosis.

Trichinosis should be differentiated from acute intestinal infections, typhoid and rash typhus, leptospirosis, measles, Quincke's edema, drug disease, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, etc.

Echinococcosis and alveococcosis most often have to be differentiated with neoplasms of the corresponding organs, parasitic cysts of another etiology, liver hemangiomas, tuberculosis, gum, abscesses, systemic mycoses.

The differential diagnosis of cysticercosis is carried out with tumors, echinococcosis, neuroinfections, and with eye damage - with toxocariasis.

  2. Differential diagnosis
    The differential diagnosis of juvenile is considered in the table. 4. Table 4. Differential diagnosis of Jurassic INDICATIONS FOR CONSULTING OTHER SPECIALISTS Optometrist: all patients with joint damage, decreased visual acuity. Endocrinologist: Cushing's syndrome, impaired growth. Otolaryngologist: foci of chronic infection in the nasopharynx. Dentist, orthodontist: caries, violation
  3. Differential diagnosis
    The pronounced polymorphism of clinical symptoms, the absence of specific signs of the disease in publicly available studies (ECG, radiography, laboratory parameters) determine the complexity of the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism and the need for differential diagnosis with many diseases. Diseases with which you have to differentiate pulmonary embolism: • MI, unstable angina pectoris; •
  4. Differential diagnosis
    In cases of suspected renovascular hypertension, a standard differential diagnosis is performed between hypertension and secondary forms of hypertension of various genesis, and if signs characteristic of renovascular hypertension are detected, the goal of differential diagnosis is to establish the immediate cause of the pathological process, i.e., to establish the etiological form of renovascular hypertension. In most cases, for
  5. Differential diagnosis
    When making a diagnosis of HCM, it is necessary to exclude other possible causes of left ventricular hypertrophy, primarily the “athlete’s heart”, acquired and congenital malformations, DCMP, and with a tendency to increase blood pressure - essential arterial hypertension. Differential diagnosis with heart defects accompanied by systolic murmur is especially important in cases of obstructive
    Possible causes of abnormal uterine bleeding include various pathologies of the reproductive system, as well as extragenital diseases. Differential diagnosis of DMC is based on the exclusion of organic causes (reproductive tract diseases, systemic diseases) and iatrogenic
  7. Differential diagnosis
    With a characteristic clinical and radiological picture, the question of differential diagnosis arises in the absence of the expected response to treatment and the torpid course. In these cases, tuberculosis, the “old” foreign body of the bronchus, allergic alveolitis, pulmonary hemosiderosis, as well as a chronic disease (cystic fibrosis, malformation of the bronchus and
  8. Differential diagnosis
    Since fatigue is a very common sign of many diseases, and the criteria for the idiopathic syndrome of chronic fatigue, although clearly defined, can still occur in other diseases, the doctor referred to by such a patient should first of all conduct a full differential diagnosis using all available clinical methods hardware and
  9. Differential diagnosis
    An attack of bronchial asthma is differentiated with other conditions, which are characterized by acute respiratory failure (see table. 7.1). When examining a patient in the interictal period, chronic lung diseases are excluded. A. Differential diagnosis of an attack of bronchial asthma 1. Infectious diseases of the respiratory tract. Sudden dyspnea and wheezing heard from a distance can
    First of all, it is necessary to correctly establish the diagnosis of angina pectoris and determine its shape. To do this, you need to analyze in detail the existing pain in the left half of the chest and the changes in the final part of the ventricular complex of the ECG (depression or ST segment elevation and a negative or high pointed T wave). Further, differential diagnosis is necessary.
  11. Differential diagnosis
    Differential diagnosis of chronic hepatitis B and fatty hepatosis (liver steatosis) is carried out due to the presence of a mild dyspeptic syndrome in the latter and an enlargement of the liver, which is sensitive to palpation. A history of, as a rule, alcohol abuse, often diabetes, obesity, chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. ALAT activity
  12. Differential diagnosis
    Differential diagnosis of AD most often has to be carried out with the following diseases. Vocal cord dysfunction (pseudo asthma). Bronchiolitis. Foreign body or milk aspiration in infants. Cystic fibrosis. Primary immunodeficiencies. Syndrome of primary ciliary dyskinesia. Tracheo-or bronchomalacia. Malformations of blood vessels, causing external compression of the respiratory tract. Stenosis
  13. Differential diagnosis
    The clinical and immunological manifestations of SLE are extremely diverse and can mimic the clinical picture of many other diseases. Most often, differential diagnosis of SLE must be carried out with the following diseases. Lupus erythematosus is manifested by fever, arthritis, serositis. Most often, lupus erythematosus is caused by hydralazine, isoniazid, procainamide, antibiotics
  14. Differential diagnosis
    Differential diagnosis is carried out between different morphological variants of the primary NS and other types of glomerulopathies, which can be the cause of secondary NS. Acute proliferative glomerulonephritis Post-streptococcal acute GN is the most common and well-studied. The participation of P-hemolytic streptococcus in its occurrence is proved. Post-streptococcal GN usually develops after
  15. Differential diagnosis
    Diagnosis of bronchial asthma in children, especially at an early age, sometimes presents considerable difficulties, since episodes of bronchial obstruction that periodically appear can be a manifestation of the most diverse pathology of the respiratory system. It should be borne in mind that the smaller the child’s age, the higher the likelihood that recurring episodes of obstructive syndrome
  16. Differential diagnosis
    Measles should be differentiated from rubella, scarlet fever, pseudotuberculosis, allergic (medicinal and other) dermatitis, enterovirus infections, serum sickness and other diseases accompanied by the appearance of skin rashes. Measles is distinguished by a complex of the main clinical manifestations in the catarrhal period: intoxication, runny nose with copious discharge, an obsessive, rough, barking cough,
  17. Differential diagnosis
    Differential diagnostic series according to the leading symptom “epigastric pain”. Stomach cancer. More often, men 5-6 decades of life who are distinguished by good health are sick. A history of gastric diseases is not characteristic. The pains in the epigastrium are spilled, non-intense. Decreased appetite. Palpatory moderate soreness in the epigastrium. X-ray of the stomach: "filling defect", "intermittent" folds
