Worst Amniotic Fluid Infection Symptom
Decreased perfusion: Oligo can be either loss of fluid or decreased production. A stressed infant will shunt oxygenated blood to more vital organs, less renal perfusion, therefore less urine produced. Anything that decreases placental perfusion can cause it (abruption or placental separation, poor implantation, vascular problems, clots, uterine abnls, etc). There are too many causes to list here, ask your ob. ...Read more

A hole: The bag of water is held together by amniotic membranes that have less integrity than an overfilled water balloon. Sometimes, they develop a "hole" and leak and re-seal, and sometimes they don't. Either way you need to tell your OB MD of this development as fetus' can get infected and die if the membranes are truly compromised. ...Read more
Pneumonia: The fluid filling the alveolus, secondary to infection, is quite simply pus/ purulence that develops as white blood cells kill the infectant. A good amount of damage to alveolar cells also occurs due to proteins released from white blood cells designed to recruit more cells to area of infection, creating breaks in cell lining. This causes increased swelling/ fluid leak into air spaces. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Painful 5cm complex ov cyst w/debris, low level echoes & mild free fluid in cul de sac. 27yo. Likelihood of malignancy? Can this cause urine frequency
Malignancy: In your age group (27 is correct, yes?) not terribly high for malignancy but not out of the question. benign tumor (non-cancer) or functional cyst is much more likely. Clinical history would be very helpful, blood testing sometimes too. Very dubious that it would cause urinary frequency. Hope this help! ...Read more
Leaking spinal fluid: Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is the fluid that surrounds and cushions the brain and spinal cord. Rhinorrhea is a runny nose. Nerves from the front of the brain (olfactory nerves) descend through a thin layer of bone called the cribriform plate and into the nasal cavity so you can smell. If that layer of bone is fractured, spinal fluid can leak down from the brain and out the nose. CSF rhinorrhea. ...Read more
What is pleural scarring less likely minimal pleural fluid? I dont have any kind of symptoms from past 4mos. What would be pleural fluid symptoms?
Probably none: this is an incidental finding- it is included because it is not "normal", but it is not pathological- and would not produce symptoms. its much more likely to be a bit of scarring than fluid, as it stated in question. so i would not worry too much about it- but if the report suggests repeating the xray at a certain interval, you should do so under your doctors supervision. hope this helps ...Read more
Have fluid behind ears/ pressure/jaw pain. Dr. said no infection and prescribed Flonase. Will this cause a brain abscess, osteomyelitis or sepsis?
All of the things: you mention are infections. If you have negative pressure or uninfected fluid in your middle ears spaces, there is no infection that could spread. The Flonase is to reduce swelling & edema of mucous membranes of your upper respiratory tract, thus allowing your Eustachian tubes to become patent, or open, again at their junction with your nasopharynx & middle ear pressure to normalize. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
