203 Possible Causes for Abdominal Distension, Quadriplegia

  • Hypokalemia

    Failures to thrive, chronic diarrhea, vomiting abdominal distension are usual symptoms.[] Here, we describe a case of severe hypokalemia inducing pseudoischemic electrocardiographic (ECG) alterations and quadriplegia, in a patient affected by chronic diarrhea.[] Patients presented with symptoms typical of bowel obstruction including abdominal distension, nausea and vomiting.[]

  • Porphyria

    In extreme cases, even quadriplegia or respiratory paralysis may occur.[] […] neurological complications: typically motor neuropathy (severe dysfunction of the peripheral nerves that innervate muscle), which leads to muscle weakness and potentially to quadriplegia[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    The most common adverse reactions (2%) in clinical trials were headache, nausea, decreased blood cortisol, upper abdominal pain, fatigue, flatulence, abdominal distension,[] An 80-year-old man developed dysarthria, quadriplegia, sensory disturbance and ataxia in all limbs.[] […] characterized by headache, vomiting, convulsions and eventually coma, with severe compromise of functioning of the central nervous system; or Acute pseudobulbar palsy; or Acute quadriplegia[]

  • Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome

    A 77-year-old man, who did not have a history of surgery, experienced repeated vomiting and developed abdominal distension.[] "Superior mesenteric artery syndrome in acute traumatic quadriplegia: case reports and literature review.". Arch Phys Med Rehabil . 2 (6): 417–20.[] Superior mesenteric artery syndrome in acute traumatic quadriplegia: case reports and literature review. Arch Phys Med Rehabil 1991;72:417–420.[]

  • Fludrocortisone

    GI: Nausea, increased appetite, ulcerative esophagitis, pancreatitis, abdominal distension, peptic ulcer with perforation and hemorrhage, melena.[] We report a case of a 28-year-old woman with C5 quadriplegia, unresponsive to conservative treatment for orthostatic hypotension.[] Experiences obtained from this case and the existing literature suggest that (1) in persons with quadriplegia, plasma catecholamine levels show little increase with sitting[]

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    After 10 weeks, he developed abdominal distension, leucocytosis, thrombocytopenia, liver dysfunction, coagulopathy, and respiratory failure.[] After almost complete recovery, relapse with quadriplegia and respiratory failure was observed 12 weeks after motor symptom onset.[] A 44-year-old male logger complained of acute quadriplegia and dyspnea. Mechanical ventilation was initiated.[]

  • Pulmonary Tuberculosis

    He had developed swelling of the feet, abdominal distension and abdominal pain during the last month.[] He had quadriplegia (muscle power 0 at 4 limbs) and sensory loss below C5 level. He also had incontinence, anal tone loss, and paradoxical respiratory pattern.[] In addition, the patient complained with pain in the right lower quadrant, abdominal distension and diarrhea (10 liquid stools daily).[]

  • Scuba Diving

    We report a 42-yr-old male patient with massive pneumoperitoneum after scuba diving, who presented himself with dyspnea and abdominal distension.[] […] illustrate the applicability of a new system of evaluation, training, and certification for scuba diving to patients with a wide variety of disabilities, such as paraplegia, quadriplegia[]

  • Emphysematous Cystitis

    They presented with severe confusion and abdominal distension.[] An 11-year-old female with spastic quadriplegia was seen in the emergency room with abdominal pain, vomiting and anorexia.[] She presents with fever, mental status changes, and abdominal distension. Abdominal films are ordered.[]

  • Cor Triatriatum

    distension, abdominal (hepatic) tenderness and edema [4].[] Reduced preload because of CTD with spastic quadriplegia that prevented physical exertion is believed to have facilitated this patient's unusually long survival.[] Finally, forth patient was a 48-year-old man with congenital spastic quadriplegia, who had a combination of uncorrected tetralogy of Fallot and CTD. [16] He underwent an emergent[]
