696 Possible Causes for Acrocyanosis

  • Raynaud Phenomenon

    Occasionally, an alternate explanation is revealed such as acrocyanosis.[] […] or a unilateral acrocyanosis.[] Also, unlike Raynaud phenomenon, acrocyanosis exhibits no trophic changes including ulcer.[]

  • Raynaud's Disease

    Acrocyanosis affects both men and women, and the age at onset is usually between 20 and 45 years.[] Other vasospastic disorders that should be included in the differential but are usually easily distinguishable by physical examination are acrocyanosis and livedo reticularis[] […] or a unilateral acrocyanosis.[]

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    Iron deficiency anemia is a common type of anemia, affecting millions of people worldwide. Iron deficiency anemia is often asymptomatic. Signs and symptoms are non-specific, unless the anemia is severe. Fatigue is the most common symptom. Patients may complain of: Fatigue Pallor Weakness Headache Palpitations Dizziness[…][]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    Myocardial calcification is rare. An 88-year-old man who had previously been diagnosed with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy exhibited left ventricular asynergy on echocardiography before undergoing cholecystectomy. Computed tomography revealed severe calcification in the apical region of the left ventricular[…][]

  • Heart Failure

    Heart failure (HF), also known as chronic heart failure (CHF), is when the heart is unable to pump sufficiently to maintain blood flow to meet the body's needs. Signs and symptoms of heart failure commonly include shortness of breath, excessive tiredness, and leg swelling. The shortness of breath is usually worse[…][]

  • Hypovolemia

    Hypovolemia also known as volume depletion is a state of decreased blood volume or diminished body fluid; more specifically, decrease in volume of blood plasma. It is thus the intravascular component of volume contraction (or loss of blood volume due to things such as bleeding or dehydration), but, as it also is the[…][]

  • Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation

    Consider heparin (300-500 U/hr) for DIC manifested by thrombosis or acrocyanosis in the absence of active bleeding. 5 Anti-fibrinolytics (tranexamic acid and ε-amioncaproic[]

  • Chronic Right-Sided Congestive Heart Failure

    Right-sided, or right ventricular, heart failure is defined as a process, not a disease. It often occurs due to left-sided heart failure, when the weakened and/or stiff left ventricle loses power to efficiently pump blood to the rest of the body. As a result, fluid is forced back through the lungs, weakening the[…][]

  • Diffuse Scleroderma

    Use cautiously with Raynaud's disease, chilblains, acrocyanosis, erythrocyanosis, or impaired temperature sensitivity, such as neuropathy.[]

  • Sclerodactyly

    Several conditions may present with findings similar to those of PSS.[ 1 ] Acrocyanosis may be seen with pulmonary hypertension, anorexia nervosa and frost-bite but without[]
