PLEASE HELP.. my youngest brother is now admitted in a hospital since June 4, 2013. his attending Physician is an internist. but until now she can't figure out the case. they have run various tests..DENGUE RAPID TEST, MALARIA TEST, HEPATITIS ..AND Typhoid fever test..but all came out negative. Today another tests was done..and a blood culture.
his symptoms are...abdominal discomfort..sometimes pain. he burps most of the time...he vomits at least 3 to 4 times a day. in the evening he usually has fever...and he chills. He's taste bud are ok.. he wants to eat but once he start eating..he has this urge to vomit again..
He is now under antibiotics..omeprazole..and a vitamins.
How is your brother? Were there imaging studies done? It is good that the initial diagnostic test results were normal. Hepatomegaly or enlarged liver may be attributed to many conditions including alcohol use, congestive heart failure, hepatitis, glycogen storage disease, primary biliary cirrhosis, steatosis, Reye syndrome, and even malignancy. Fever may also suggest infectious cause and he may benefit from a referral to an infectious disease specialist. Take care and hope all is well. Do keep us posted and best regards.
