Splenomegaly, caused worldwide most commonly by malaria, can occur in other infections, in portal vein thrombosis or in portal hypertension in the context of liver cirrhosis.

Praxis (Bern 1994). 2021 Feb;110(2):75-76. doi: 10.1024/1661-8157/a003626.ABSTRACTCME/Answers: Elevated Creatine Kinase as a Diagnostic Parameter of Rhabdomyolysis Abstract. Elevated CK values with or without symptoms require clarification in order to rule out possible secondary complications. Adequate hydrogenation, discontinuation of possibly triggering drugs and noxious agents, and close laboratory controls are decisive for the outcome. Acute rhabdomyolysis can have various causes, which can generally be classified as traumatic or atraumatic. In case of recurrent occurrence, genetic or autoimmunological diseases must al...
