6,610 Possible Causes for Absent Pulp Chambers, Apnea, X-Ray Abnormal

  • Hypophosphatasia

    Odontohypophosphatasia (AR or AD) Bone: loss of alveolar bone Dental: exfoliation (incisors) reduced dentin thickness enlarged pulp chambers caries AD: autosomal dominant[ada.org] The skeleton is hypomineralized, which is readily identified on X-ray. This form of HPP is almost universally fatal shortly after birth.[mayoclinic.org] After the pyridoxal phosphate dose was increased (to 40mg/kg/day), the patient's seizures and apnea resolved, and her MRI findings also improved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    […] consistent with lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) on a chest X-ray relative to the most recent chest X-ray, as determined by the local radiologist.[clinicaltrials.gov] A number of similarities between apnea of prematurity, upper airway reflex apnea and the apneas in these two infants with RSV infection suggests the possibility that these[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest x rays give some indication of whether the lungs are hyperinflated from an effort to move air in and out.[healthofchildren.com]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    Diagnostic Highlights Test Normal Result Abnormality With Condition Explanation Chest x-rays Normal heart size and clear lungs Enlarged right ventricle and pulmonary artery[nursing.unboundmedicine.com] BACKGROUND: The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in the pediatric population is currently estimated at 1-2% of all children.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Both patients had developed symptoms of sleep apnea and all-night polysomnography confirmed the presence of severe obstructive sleep apnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Intestinal Perforation

    An x-ray may show abnormalities in the abdomen, such as air under the diaphragm, which is a result of the perforation.[ibdcrohns.about.com] Nonspecific (apnea, resp failure, lethargy, poor feeding, temp instability)4.[slideshare.net] Some of the tests done to diagnose and find a perforation include radiology tests such as a CT scan or an x-ray of the abdomen.[ibdcrohns.about.com]

  • Achondroplasia

    A number of measurements of the bones in x-ray images will reveal abnormal proportions. Treatment No treatment will reverse the defect present in achondroplasia.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common problem in patients with achondroplasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] X-rays of the long bones can reveal achondroplasia in the newborn. There is no specific treatment for achondroplasia.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Drowning

    All patients undergo assessment of oxygenation by oximetry or, if results are abnormal or if there are respiratory symptoms or signs, ABG and chest x-ray.[merckmanuals.com] Victims in cardiopulmonary arrest will present with apnea, asystole, fibrillation, and immersion syndrome.[symptoma.com] End-tidal PCO2 was 18.9 /- 2.0 mmHg before apnea and 38.3 /- 4.7 mmHg at apnea termination.[web.archive.org]

  • Pulmonary Hypertension

    One or more of the following tests may be done if pulmonary hypertension is suspected: A chest x-ray may show heart enlargement and abnormal lung vessels.[circ.ahajournals.org] […] examined the secondary preventive effect of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on patients with ischemic heart disease who had mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An ECG may show some abnormalities that may be suggestive of right heart failure. Chest x-ray may also show enlargement of the chambers of the right heart.[medicinenet.com]

  • Hypochondroplasia

    MRI or CT examination of the foramen magnum is indicated if there is evidence of severe hypotonia, spinal cord compression, or central sleep apnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Treatment for sleep apnea depends on the cause of the sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is treated by surgically removing the tonsils and adenoids.[encyclopedia.com] ., spinal stenosis, tibial bowing, obstructive apnea) occur less frequently in hypochondroplasia but intellectual disability and epilepsy may be more prevalent.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
