Jaundice – obstructive jaundice, viral hepatitis and biliary stone disease

It is not an illness but a medical condition which can occur in babies, children and adults. Jaundice most often occurs as a result of an underlying disorder that either causes tissues to become over-saturated with bilirubin or prevents the liver from disposing of bilirubin. In newborn babies, though, jaundice is common because they have extra red blood cells that begin to break down soon after they are born. In otherwise healthy newborns, jaundice usually peaks at about three to five days of life and then begins to go away on its own. In breastfed babies, this can take as long as two to three weeks. Jaundice during the first 24 hours of life is not considered normal and will prompt to do some tests to look for the cause.

In adults, the symptoms of jaundice may indicate damage to the liver. If the cause is not treated, it can lead to liver failure.

Ulcers:

Ulcers: Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of your esophagus, stomach and the upper portion of your small intestine. The most common symptom of a peptic ulcer is abdominal pain.

Peptic ulcers include:

Gastric ulcers that occur on the inside of the stomach

Esophageal ulcers that occur inside the hollow tube (esophagus) that carries food from your throat to your stomach

Duodenal ulcers that occur on the inside of the upper portion of your small intestine (duodenum)

Chronic liver disease (Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C), cirrhosis, portal hypertension, variceal bleeding, ascites

These are diseases that are caused due to continued degeneration and progressive destruction of the liver. Such aspects can develop into Cirrhosis and fibrosis.

GI Bleeding (haematemesis / melena / fresh blood per rectum)

Gastrointestinal bleeding or hemorrhage is caused due to hemorrhage in the gastrointestinal tract or rectum. If left untreated the same can manifest into serious secondary medical conditions. The degrees of bleeding can range from minimal to acute and chronic.

Abdominal pain
