Etiological and Clinical Patterns of Isolated Hepatomegaly at a Tertiary Level Hospital in Bangladesh

The study’s goal was to determine the cause of isolated hepatomegaly in Bangladesh. In Bangladesh, a prospective cross-sectional study was conducted in the medicine department of a tertiary care hospital. The study included one hundred consecutive hospitalised patients with isolated hepatomegaly. Splenomegaly is frequently coupled with hepatomegaly. However, isolated hepatomegaly without splenomegaly can occur in a variety of clinical situations. In our analysis, the most common cause of isolated hepatomegaly was liver abscess (34.0%), followed by congestive heart failure (30.0%), viral hepatitis (14%), liver secondary infections (8%), primary hepatocellular cancer (6%), and fatty liver (4%). (2 percent ). Amebic abscesses made up 59% of the liver abscesses, while pyogenic abscesses made up 41%.
