Hyperamylasemia - Preferred
Concept UI M0405343
Scope note A condition with abnormally elevated level of AMYLASES in the serum. Hyperamylasemia due to PANCREATITIS or other causes may be differentiated by identifying the amylase isoenzymes.
Preferred term Hyperamylasemia
Macroamylasemia - Narrower
Concept UI M0405363
Scope note A benign condition in which the circulating AMYLASES are of high molecular masses, macroamylases. Macroamylases are amylase-plasma protein complexes, usually with immunoglobulins. Macroamylases cannot be cleared by the renal glomeruli.
Preferred term Macroamylasemia
